Schuylkill County Students Inducted into the Frederick Douglass Institute for Academic Excellence at Bloomsburg University


More than 90 student scholars were recently inducted into the Frederick Douglass Institute for Academic Excellence at Bloomsburg University, a Commonwealth University including 5 from Schuylkill County.

Under the inspiration of Frederick Douglass and other distinguished leaders of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, Bloomsburg's FDIAE promotes academic excellence among students and enhances their understanding and appreciation of human diversity. The institute is part of PASSHE's collaborative to enhance the academic life and enrich the campus climate of participating universities. It enables those universities to identify with a man whose life and work embody American democratic ideals and educational excellence.

Requirements to become a part of the FDI Student Scholar Program are to maintain a GPA greater than 3.0, participate in at least two FDIAE events each semester, contribute to an FDI legacy project, and promote social justice and DEI ideals.

From Schuylkill County:
  • Paige Borrell from Pottsville
  • Kaylin Najda from Shenandoah
  • Ashley Rumpf from Pine Grove
  • Kayla Schmerfeld from Barnesville
  • Kalie Tobin from Port Carbon
