Bryan E. McCaffery, HVAC department supervisor at Bucknell University, recently returned to his alma mater to conduct mock interviews to prepare the students in Kathy M. Richards’ Communications class (ENL010) for job placement upon graduation. A 1981 graduate of Williamsport Area Community College’s diesel mechanic major, McCaffery also earned a Penn College degree in heating, ventilation and air conditioning technology in 1998.  He is a former director of maintenance and facility operations for the Williamsport Area School District and, Richards said, “was happy to give back to the college that has equipped him to be successful in life!”
