Roy Buck Fund
Dr. Roy Buck, a native of Warrior's Mark, in Huntington County, was salutatorian of his 1938 high school graduating class and went on to attend Penn State, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in agricultural education and a master’s degree in rural sociology. He served in the U.S. Army Military Police in the European Theater of Operations during World War II, receiving a Bronze Star medal and achieving the rank of sergeant. He then graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1950 with a PhD in sociology. Roy worked as a high school teacher for a few years before joining Penn State as an assistant professor. He remained at Penn State until his retirement in 1981 as Professor Emeritus of sociology. This fund supports the ongoing operations of the State College Meals on Wheels. Since its founding in 1971, this award-winning program has served more than 1.5 million meals to qualified, home-bound individuals daily, Monday through Friday. Each client receives one hot meal and a bagged dinner on delivery day.
