Marc T. Kaylor, who graduated in May with a bachelor’s degree in aviation maintenance technology, was a gold medalist in that category at last month’s SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City, Missouri. A student photographer during his last two years at Penn College, he will begin work July 28 as a Cessna Citation mechanic at the Stewart International Airport in New York state’s southern Hudson Valley. Among students and recent alumni to take part in the June 23-27 event – the 50th annual for SkillsUSA – Kaylor is the college’s 35th national medalist. (It was his second trip to Kansas City; he placed second in 2013.) “Thank you to all of my professors that helped me make it this far. Also, thank you to (welding instructor/adviser) James Colton II for taking the time to travel with us to Kansas City and being such a great supporter of Skills,” Kaylor said. “And, of course, thank you to all of the students who made it to SkillsUSA.” Watch PCToday for more.
