Robin Elaine Criswell, age 47, of Neshannock Twp., died unexpectedly on Oct. 14. Criswell was an administrative assistant to the Business and Finance Office and Athletics Department at Penn State Shenango for the last two and a half years.
Penn State Shenango recently hired Rakiesha Morrison, a former Farrell High School cheerleader and Gannon University competitive cheerleader and dancer, as its new head cheerleading coach. She currently coaches competitive cheer for Fire and Ice Hermitage and is employed at the Mercer County Courthouse in Mercer, Pennsylvania.
Andrew Frank’s involvement with Penn State Shenango comes full circle 35-plus years after he first arrived on campus in the early 1980s as a student and then as a volunteer coach for women’s athletics. Frank, a native of Farrell, will return to Shenango as the assistant women’s volleyball coach for the team’s inaugural season this fall.
