    Our Cause

    Originally a part of the 1889 Foundation, the Chef Auction has a rich 10+ year history of helping those in need throughout our area. Now, the 1889 Foundation has ceremoniously passed the Chef Auction to the Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Foundation in hopes of carrying on its legacy. With your generous support, this year’s Chef Auction will go to helping future generations find success in our region through the Supporting Scholars Fund (Presidential, Emerging Leader, and Destination Graduation scholarships) and other culinary scholarships.

    We are grateful for the local restaurants and chefs who are taking the time to support members of the community looking to build better futures for themselves, their families, and the region through education. Currently, the list of chefs and restaurants participating includes:

    Board of Trustees Meeting

    October 17, 2023, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm , Penn Highlands Richland

    The Board of Trustees is the policy-making body of the College and is ultimately responsible for setting the larger agenda for the institution. The Board is comprised of representatives from private, for-profit companies, education, and non-profits. The Cambria County Commissioners appoint 12 members to our Board of Trustees. Three additional members are board-appointed from locations in which the College has an academic center, and the Student Senate President serves as a voting member.

    The Board of Trustees meeting takes place at the Richland Campus in the Holtzman Board Room and/or via Zoom.
