Weiss to Speak at Penn State Shenango Commencement

SHARON, Pa. – Carolyn M. Weiss, chief financial officer at The Pension Boards and a Penn State philanthropist, will give the keynote address at Penn State Shenango’s spring commencement ceremony at 11:30 a.m. May 6 in the auditorium.

Weiss, a Farrell native, attended Penn State Shenango for two years before transitioning to the campus at University Park. She earned an MBA in accountancy from Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business and is a New York State-licensed certified public accountant. 

In fall 2022, she began serving as the CFO at The Pension Boards, an organization that offers employee benefit programs for active and retired clergy and lay employees who serve the United Church of Christ.

Throughout her career, Weiss has lived and worked in Duesseldorf, Germany, and Xi’an, China, while also traveling through Europe and South America as a consultant and speaker.

“We are pleased that Carolyn will be joining us on campus as we celebrate the outstanding achievements of our students,” says Jo Anne Carrick, campus director. “With more than three decades of experience in her profession, which has brought her all over the world, she brings a wealth of knowledge and life experiences that will surely lead to a profound message for our graduates.”
