Shippensburg University renames planetarium



By, Samantha Stambaugh – Shippensburg, PA

The Shippensburg University planetarium has been renamed for long-serving director, Jack Roddick.

John “Jack” Roddick has always loved the skies and shared that love as the director of the planetarium, Dibert Planetarium.

The new name is Dibert-Roddick Planetarium.

Roddick came to Shippensburg University 70 years ago as a student, served in World War II, and then returned to finish his degree in 1947.
