           Penn State University provided volunteer work at the DuBois Area Historical Society as part of Martin Luther King Jr. Service Day, Monday, January 21.

            The students represented the southwest campuses of Penn State University. Each year the six campuses in southwest Pennsylvania visit one of the communities where the campuses are located to volunteer. DuBois was the site for 2013.
