Nathaniel J. Correll Named ‘Student of the Month’

Nathaniel J. Correll, a building automation technology major from Nazareth, has been chosen as the October “Student of the Month” at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

A member of the student chapter of the Air Conditioning Contractors of America and part of the men’s volleyball club team, Correll was described by his nominator as having “learned to time-manage remarkably well” in juggling daily responsibilities and late-night practices – all while remaining “an overall well-rounded individual.”

Defined as a hands-on person who is extremely knowledgeable about his major (and about cars), “Nathaniel strives to better himself in any way, shape or form. He is more than willing to put others before himself, helping anyone in any way possible.”

That “true character” shows through whether Correll is helping a family become more proficient with household appliances, completing a parking-lot vehicle repair, easing a senior citizen’s struggle with a chore or lending a hand wherever else it is needed, the nominator said.

Student of the Month recognition is bestowed by the college’s Student Government Association numerous times each academic year based on nominees’ commitment, service, role-model behavior, academics, leadership and campus involvement.

Congrats, Nate. This is awesome.

Amy Correll,

Of course, I am the proud Mom of this fine young man, who, while at Penn College, has grown in maturity, self-reliance, perseverance and compassion. Only those closest to him know the other half of the story: that, behind the scenes, family tragedy has been a reality. Nate’s Dad suffered permanent disabilities from a truck accident while Nate was a junior in high school, and a stroke at the age of 54 during Nate’s sophomore year of college. Through it all, Nate has been our biggest supporter, kept up his grades and is an awesome friend to so many! His girlfriend told us recently that he paid for a veterans breakfast at the local diner around school. So, in my opinion, you could not have picked a better student or person for this honor! Thank you! We are all so proud of you, Nate!
