National Philanthropic Partnership Change
Alpha Sigma Alpha adopted the S. June Smith Center (“Center”) as a national philanthropic partner in 1990. For 29 years, Alpha Sigma Alpha members have made a difference in the lives of children with developmental needs and their families in the central Pennsylvania community.
In 2013, Excentia acquired the S. June Smith Center to expand their services to include children, which provided the Center greater financial and staff support. As Excentia continues the expansion and growth of their services, they have decided to rebrand and unify their services under one name. Excentia will discontinue the use of the S. June Smith Center name effective July 2019.
As a result of this change, Excentia/S. June Smith Center will no longer be named as a national philanthropic partner of Alpha Sigma Alpha. Chapters who have supported the Center are encouraged to continue supporting Excentia as a local philanthropic partner.
Alpha Sigma Alpha alumna Dr. S. June Smith, KK, founded the Center in 1965. She was a community leader, advocating for appropriate services for children with disabilities. Her legacy lives on as children in the central Pennsylvania community are supported through the therapeutic and developmental services offered by Excentia.
