2011 Little League Cookout/Grand Slam Parade


Pennsylvania College of Technology again helped welcome visitors to Williamsport for the Little League Baseball World Series. On Aug. 17, the college hosted a third annual cookout for the series teams on the lawn outside the Bush Campus Center, then led players, coaches and umpires to their respective divisions in the Grand Slam Parade down West Fourth Street. The Penn College contingent’s theme – “What Does the Wildcat Want to Be When It Grows Up?” – consisted of a float with President Davie Jane Gilmour and students representing their majors, along with the Baja racing vehicle produced by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. The Wildcat mascot, student-athletes, Student Ambassadors and employee volunteers accompanied the float, handing out “Go to Work, Cat!” playing cards, pins and wristbands (all designed by College Information and Community Relations) to spectators.
