Bradley A. Yohn Chosen as March ‘Student of the Month’


Bradley A. YohnBradley A. Yohn, of Shade Gap, on track to graduate with five degrees earned in just three and a half years, has been chosen as the March “Student of the Month” by the Student Government Association at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

Yohn also is active outside the classroom/laboratory environment: He has captained an intramural flag football team; attends Campus Ministry International; is an avid hunter, fisherman, camper and vegetable gardener; coaches and referees in a church basketball league; is a Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association official for baseball and football; and restores automobiles and farm machinery, He also spends time with his fiancée, Jill M. Kern, a technology management student at Penn College.

The “Student of the Month” is selected seven times each academic year based on commitment, service, role-model behavior, academics, leadership and campus involvement. Nominations from faculty/staff and other students are strongly encouraged.
