Waverly resident Maryla Scranton delivered an address during commencement ceremonies for the Pennsylvania State University's Worthington Scranton Campus. Scranton is a Penn State alumna and the president of the school's advisory board. "Fear will ruin your life; failure won't," Scranton said in her speech. "Failure provides opportunity to learn. It's one of the best graduate schools you will ever attend. When you fail, which everyone does from time to time, pull yourself up and start again." She also told the new alumni to never stop working on themselves, never give up, and to strive for balance in their lives.
