LaunchBox

Hazleton innovation hub named for local leader Pasco Schiavo

Penn State and the Invent Penn State initiative are honoring the late Pasco L. Schiavo, a longtime champion for Penn State Hazleton and the surrounding community who passed away Dec. 29, 2018, by naming the Hazleton LaunchBox in his name. The naming recognizes Schiavo’s stature in the region and a $1 million gift from his estate to the campus.
