Candlelight vigil planned in Joe Paterno's honor

By: WJAC Web Staff

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- A nonprofit group has scheduled a candlelight vigil in Centre County on the two-year anniversary of the death of former Penn State University football coach Joe Paterno.

Inspiration Way organizers have scheduled the vigil for 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Suzanne Pohland Paterno Catholic Student Faith Center on Park Avenue in State College.

According to the Inspiration Way website, the foundation is committed to helping with projects that will continue to commemorate Paterno and his family's legacy and positive accomplishments they have brought to the university and the community.

Organizers will be lighting 409 candles to honor Paternos death. They are asking the public to write quotes or personal stories about Paterno for luminary bags that will be at the event.

Organizers said the Paterno family requested donations be made to Penn State THON in Joe Paterno's name.
