A Penn College ‘Thank You’ for Campus Family’s Military Service


On this Veterans Day, we salute the students, faculty and staff who have served (or continue to serve) their country.

Members of the Pennsylvania College of Technology community are encouraged to honor with gratitude the military service of these co-workers and classmates, who are among those we recognize through this voluntary honor roll.
