About the Donor
Susan Biernat '77 established this fund in honor of her husband, Joseph A. Biernat, Jr. '75, Trustee of Gettysburg College.
Although Joe has enjoyed a successful career as a finance analyst, he has maintained an interest in the environment and his undergraduate degree was in biology. Susan explains, “Recently he has been working diligently to help establish a company in the environmental sector that could have a measurable impact in the area of climate change. Endowing a fund to support acquisitions in environmental studies seemed like an appropriate fit.”
