Back to their Roots
After graduating from Penn State, Jim and Janet Meister moved from city to city, following Jim’s job with Alcoa. They settled in Philadelphia just long enough to raise their two daughters. When Jim finally retired (for his 4th time), they picked up their life and moved back to their roots –Happy Valley.
The Meister’s have been happily living in State College for 17 years. Not only does Jim host the infamous Meister tailgate every gameday, but he is an extremely important character in the PSU community – endowing multiple scholarships, heading the marketing of Beaver Stadium box seating, and last but not least winning the prestigious Lion Paw’s Medal alongside Joe Paterno.
