Helen Piszek Nelson '70 has lived a life committed to ensuring access to education, promoting international cultural connections, and cultivating lasting individual relationships. She has time and again demonstrated her commitment to education for the greater community through her service and philanthropic support. Being involved with the Community Partnership School (CPS) since its inception, Helen assisted with the concept and creation of the Edward and Olga Piszek Library. In addition, she has supported scholarships at both Dickinson College and Gwynedd Mercy University and worked to create a study abroad program at Delaware Valley University. Always one to step in and take action, her volunteer roles at several schools and institutions, such as the Ambler Theater, the Rodale Institution, and the Pearl S.

Additionally, through her support of the GA Singing Patriots bi-annual trip to Poland she has introduced generations of students to the international stage and the importance of exploring other’s cultures. Helen’s generosity and positive outlook have reached far and wide, and she proudly perpetuates a continuous commitment to community spirit and the greater good.
