She currently coaches competitive cheer for Fire and Ice Hermitage and is employed at the Mercer County Courthouse in Mercer, Pennsylvania.
Sharon Regional Medical Center has teamed up with Penn State Shenango’s Athletics program to provide comprehensive athletic training services for the campus’ new men’s basketball team and women’s volleyball team. This past fall, through Sharon Regional’s Sports Medicine program, certified athletic trainer Deb Bornes began working with the Penn State Shenango Lions to provide professional services during the Lions’ home practices and games.

L to R: Penn State Shenango Athletic Director and Head Men's Basketball Coach Andre Smith, Buhl Community Recreation Center Director Jason Kmick, and Penn State Shenango Director of Business and Finance Bill Dungee discuss their newly signed contract.
“It should be a win-win situation for both of us,” said Penn State Shenango Business and Finance Director Bill Dungee nearly one year ago. Dungee was referring to the campus’ newly reinstated athletic program and its collaboration with the Buhl Community Recreation Center in Sharon, Pennsylvania. The Shenango campus recently signed a three-year contract with the Buhl Center to utilize its facilities.
