Dallas Krapf – Vice Chairman of the Board of the Krapf Group, the West Chester-based operator of school and charter buses – has shown his appreciation for Penn State and the military by endowing an ROTC scholarship at the university, writes Sean Yoder for Penn State News.
The Vietnam War veteran, a longtime Penn State supporter, and his wife Diane have pledged $100,000 to The Dallas and Diane Krapf ROTC Outstanding Leadership and Service Scholarship.
The new scholarship will be awarded to undergraduate students with excellent academic records who take a leadership position, get involved in community volunteer outreach, and are enrolled or planning to enroll in one of Penn State’s ROTC programs.
According to Capt. Scott Young – a liaison to the university for the Penn State Air Force, Army, and Naval ROTC branches – Dallas Krapf has been a big supporter of the program and other efforts across the university.
“For somebody who gives so much to support not just the ROTC, but the entire university and community, Dallas is incredibly humble,” said Young. “He certainly doesn’t do it for any kind of recognition and actually shies away from any thanks he gets from students in ROTC.”
