Charles J. Adams III ’69, a graduate of Penn State Berks, was selected to receive the Philip Philip Mitchell Alumni Service Award, which recognizes one individual University-wide each year who has made significant contributions in the area of public service by sharing or volunteering his or her talent, time, and resources on behalf of Penn State.

Adams, who is known best in Berks County for the morning talk show “Charlie & Company” on WEEU-AM Radio Station, and as a paranormal activity story teller, and author of more than thirty ghost story books, has held an annual Penn State Berks Ghost Stories Night in which all proceeds were donated to the Penn State Berks Alumni Society scholarship.

He received a $1,000 cash gift to designate to the program of his choice, a certificate, and inscription of his name on a permanent plaque. The Penn State Alumni Association honored Adams for his service and dedication to Penn State in October 2011, at the Annual Alumni Volunteer Awards Dinner at University Park campus.
