LEMONT FURNACE, Pa. — Janet Ritenour, nursing instructor at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus, was presented with a cherry-wood rocking chair to commemorate 25 years of service at the campus.
Ritenour has participated in the March of Dimes Walk and Benefit Fayette, and she has served on multiple university committees and councils. She has volunteered for CHIP, Operation Russ, Wreaths Across America, and the local food bank. She has presented her work on the opioid epidemic locally, regionally and nationally. Ritenour is a registered nurse and certified in CPR, neonatal resuscitation and hypnotherapy.
In observance of Penn State University tradition, members of faculty and staff eligible for the Twenty-Five Year Service Award Program may select from five styles of chairs, including captain-style and rocking chairs, or a mantel clock, all of which display the University seal.
“Janet has contributed greatly to our campus, college and community since 1994,” said Charles Patrick, chancellor and chief academic officer at Penn State Fayette. “We are grateful for her service.”
