The Swope Legacy

The Swope Legacy is fascinating because it traces the life of a "Hometown Boy" with his endless service to First National Bank and his community. 

The Swope family has dedicated their lives to the academic enrichment and physical expansion of West Chester University and our community of West Chester for nearly a century. 

Charles S. Swope, an alumnus of the class of 1921, became President of the College at the age of thirty-five. He proposed a new program for the academic curriculum, faculty salary increases and had approved the first master plan for the campus expansion on the north and south campuses. He also proposed legislation for West Chester State to become West Chester University.
