Glenn W and Nancy S Gamble Fund
Married in 1951, Glenn and Nancy Gamble had a passion for learning. From 1951-1959, Glenn earned his bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees in education from Penn State. Nancy also attended Penn State, earning her bachelor’s and then her master’s degree in education in 1955. After serving in Panama as part of the US Army’s 101st Airborne Division, Glenn’s educational career took the family to Wittenberg University in Ohio, the University of Florida, and Rutger’s University in New Jersey. For over 25 years, Nancy worked in the New Jersey public schools, retiring as an elementary principal. After retiring, the Gambles made The Village at Penn State their home. They established many scholarship funds through the college and enjoyed mentoring students. Glenn founded the college’s Alumni Council, where Nancy later participated. In 1996, Nancy helped found Penn State’s Community Academy for Lifelong Learning – later known as the The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Penn State or “OLLI” – and Glenn was an active member from the beginning. As members of Centre Foundation’s Campbell Society, they ensured that their dedication to learning would live on through the legacy of this fund, which supports the mission of OLLI: to provide mature adults with educational and social enrichment opportunities that accentuate the joy of learning and personal fulfillment.
