Susan Messinger, owner of Sweet Kathy’s Ice Cream Parlor, said the decision to help the University boost its funding for deserving students stemmed from her belief that schools and their students are an important part of any community.

“We believe in giving back to the community,” Messinger said. “My husband and I are very much pro-education and we thought if we could help some students go to college…that’s what we wanted to do.”

Sylvia Bryant, PSU’s Executive Director of University Advancement praised Messenger’s generosity and philanthropic spirit.

“Those customers enjoying this delicious product can also feel good knowing that their purchase is helping to ease the financial burden of deserving PSU students,” said Bryant.
