CENTER VALLEY, Pa., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its continuing support for education, and to help develop a source of qualified and diverse candidates for future positions, PPL Corporation and its subsidiary, PPL EnergyPlus™, will sponsor the trading wing in the new Gambet Center for Business and Healthcare Education at DeSales University. The university will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Gambet Center at noon on Friday, April 5, at its Center Valley campus.

"We are so pleased to be sponsoring the trading wing at the new Gambet Center for Business and Healthcare Education. This outstanding resource will create a top-notch educational experience for undergraduate business and MBA students that will help prepare these future business leaders for success while also creating a diverse pool of qualified potential candidates for positions within PPL EnergyPlus," said Robert D. Gabbard, president, PPL EnergyPlus.

"We were impressed with the university's commitment to diversity. This is a commitment that we share and both organizations will be stronger for it," Gabbard added.  "We are also a company that is committed to giving back to the communities where we live, work and serve. This sponsorship truly embodies this concept and brings it to life in a tangible and meaningful way."

The PPL EnergyPlus Trading Wing will be made up of four rooms and features a unique and specialized business classroom that replicates a commodities trading center, similar to the energy marketing center operated by PPL EnergyPlus in Allentown.

The state-of-the-art business trading room will allow students to enjoy a simulated trading environment, which will include a digital stock market exchange ticker on overhead walls. The trading wing will also include a high-tech classroom for group learning, and two seminar rooms that will enhance learning by allowing students to experience board meeting simulations and participate in small group meetings and breakout sessions.
