2010 Little League Cookout / Grand Slam Parade

Pennsylvania College of Technology again was a home-field favorite with its community outreach for the start of the Little League Baseball World Series. A college-hosted cookout for the 16 series teams – as well as coaches, team uncles, umpires and other guests – was held on the lawn outside the Bush Campus Center. The college also proved a commanding presence in the Grand Slam Parade, which stepped off at Grier and West Fourth streets for the march east to Market Street. The college’s parade entry was themed after a new coloring book developed by College Information & Community Relations, titled “What does the Wildcat want to be when it grows up?” President Davie Jane Gilmour joined students on a float representing the college’s academic schools and majors, and parade-watchers saw cars from the Penn College Motorsports Association and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ Baja competition vehicle. The Wildcat mascot, student ambassadors, athletes, the American Welding Society student chapter and employee volunteers accompanied the float, handing out coloring books, crayons, collectible pins and wristbands to spectators.
