Moment of silence for fallen corrections officer

Local News

Governor Tom Wolf is asking everyone to observe a moment of silence for Sergeant Mark Baserman, who died one year ago while working at the State Correctional Institution at Somerset.

“While there are not enough words to honor his life, his sacrifice, and his service to his fellow citizens, I am asking all Pennsylvanians to honor his memory by observing a one-minute moment of silence at 12:47 p.m. Tuesday in memory of Sgt. Baserman and his ultimate sacrifice,” Governor Wolf said.

Employees at SCI Somerset created a Baserman Memorial Scholarship fund with $25,000 raised so far toward a $50,000 scholarship for a student to attend University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.
