On this episode of the Knightly News Podcast, we welcome Sandy Box from the Central Penn College Education Foundation to discuss the 2021 summer Foundation scholarship essay and upcoming golf tournament fundraiser. On the second segment, we welcome Mechanicsburg Borough Council member Sara Agerton to chat about how she got involved with the borough council and the importance of supporting small businesses.

In our segment with Box, we are joined by Knightly News Secretary Nash McComsey, a corporate communications student who is interning with the foundation. During the episode, McComsey talks about his work with his internship, including his involvement in the upcoming 50th Annual Golf Open.

The Golf Open takes place annually and it is the only major event that the Education Foundation holds each year. It takes place on Aug. 13 at Rich Valley Golf Course in Mechanicsburg.

In addition, Box and McComsey discussed the scholarship essay application for scholarships. The application is open now until Aug. 27 at http://foundation.centralpenn.edu.

During our second segment, we welcome Sara Agerton, a Mechanicsburg borough council member who was a guest speaker at the college recently.

As we chat with Agerton, she shares what it was that made her want to be a part of the council, specifically her love for the town of Mechanicsburg and the bustling downtown area with local shops.

On the council, Agerton works with the Downtown Mechanicsburg Partnership in order to foster the continued growth of the downtown area, as well as a host of other things that the council has purview over.

Also, McComsey continues to sit in on this episode, providing his experience with engaging in local government proceedings and his hope for increased involvement from citizens at a community level.
