Four Central Penn alums who were Knightly News Media Club members will be inducted later this year into the club’s hall of fame.

These members are Brian Christiana, Sherri Long, Christine Fusselman and Nasir Harris. Honoring these members will display the lasting impact they had not only on Central Penn but also on the media club.
