The Rock Ethics Institute honors Penn State undergrads who demonstrate “confidence, experience and knowledge” by taking a stand for a cause they believe in.

The 2016 recipients were honored yesterday. Alanna Kaiser and Nathan Larkin won for their dedication to the on-campus organization Fossil Free PSU.

When Nathan Larkin came to Penn State as a freshman in 2013 he already had a cause he cared about in mind: fossil fuel divestment at Penn State.
