Hosted by the University of Pittsburgh Chapter, the Pennsylvania College Democrats State Convention this year was held March 30 to April 30, where the Shippensburg University College Democrats were named Chapter of the Year.
Being awarded Chapter of the Year is the highest honor a club can obtain at the state level.
Other universities competing against Shippensburg University for the honor included Temple University and the University of Pittsburgh.
SU was named Chapter of the Year for its work in relocating the Shippensburg Township voting precinct, bringing together numerous candidates by hosting a successful fundraiser, and for all the hard work they have done for Democratic candidates.
In addition to receiving the honor of Chapter of the Year, two SU students were elected to the Pennsylvania Executive Board of College Democrats.
Charles Black, a senior political science major, was elected as central vice president and Yvonne Page, a senior psychology major, was elected as communications director.
