Penn High School’s athletic director, Ben Karasiak, was honored on April 22nd at a banquet hosted by the Moose Krause Chapter of the College Football Hall of Fame.

The Moose Krause Chapter of the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame is one of the most renowned awards in the country. PHM’s superintendent, Dr. Jerry Thacker, had this to say about Ben Karasiak’s prestigious award win,”Ben Karasiak is the very deserving recipient of the 2015 Moose Krause Contributions to Football award.” he continued to add, “Ben has served as the Director of Athletics and Student Activities at Penn High School since 1997 and during that time has overseen the program’s 11 team state champions and 13 state-runner up teams.  Ben has also played an integral role in the improvements of several of P-H-M’s athletic facilities.” Thacker concluded his thoughts with,”Please join me in congratulating Ben on his outstanding achievement.”

We here at PNN, too,congratulate Ben Karasiak on this inpressive achievment.
