Retired Chesco students to be honored

CHESTER COUNTY

Older students to be honored

WEST CHESTER West Chester University students 60 and older will be honored Friday at the Lifelong Learning Celebration, part of West Chester Borough's work as a World Health Organization Age-Friendly Community.

The university allows retired Pennsylvania residents to attend tuition-free. More than 200 are enrolled and were invited to Friday's event with local and university leaders, said Mike Corcoran, a coordinator for the project at WCU.

Since the borough received the WHO designation in April 2014, the Age-Friendly West Chester Project has sponsored events such as Careers in Aging Day and a senior center spa day. - Justine McDaniel
