Joe and Sue Paterno donate $100,000 to former employer, Penn State

    The Patriot-News reports Joe and Sue Paterno have donated $100,000 to Penn State just months after former football coach Joe Paterno was fired from his job.

    According to the report, the money, which was donated last month, will be split between a library and an undergraduate fellow program that bear the family name.

    Sue Paterno has said the donation is an annual gift to the Paterno Liberal Arts Undergraduate Fellow Program and the Paterno Library, according to the Patriot-News.
