The Sheetz Fellows Program prepares Penn State Altoona undergraduate students to be leaders on campus, in their organizations and communities, and in a global society. Sheetz Fellows demonstrate a vigorous spirit and aspire to achieve professional and personal development beyond the traditional classroom setting.
Sheetz Fellows are assisted in their growth and development by dedicated faculty, staff, and leaders in the community. The program excels at instilling a sense of servant leadership, offering mentorship from industry experts and professors, and providing experiential education through study away, seminars, and workshops.
Sheetz Fellows are granted the unique opportunity for personal interaction with Steve Sheetz, former CEO and Chairman of the Board, of Sheetz Inc., a multibillion dollar company and recognized industry leader of convenience retailing. Students develop a personal connection while gaining first-hand knowledge of his successes, challenges, and valuable advice.
