EPIC to meet June 26
The Greater Northeast Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce last week held a reception at Torresdale-Frankford Country Club for Sister Francesca Onley, who is retiring as president of Holy Family University. Sister Francesca became the school’s fourth president in 1981, and she has overseen much physical growth of the institution. She also led Holy Family’s transition from college to university status in 2002.
Former Pennsylvania House Speaker John Perzel has insistently proclaimed his innocence since November 2009, when a grand jury indicted him and nine others on campaign-related corruption charges.
