Building a future at ‘Daughters & Sons to Work’ day


The annual Take Our Daughters & Sons to Work observance brought 36 young women and men to Penn College’s campuses for a variety of activities Thursday. Human Resources’ Mattie L. Pulizzi and Jennifer L. Whitmoyer coordinated the day’s program, which included job-shadowing with parents and their co-workers; campus tours; career-focused activities with the School of Business & Hospitality, The Dr. Welch Workshop: A Makerspace at Penn College, and Dining Services; a Capitol Eatery lunch; and greetings from Paul L. Starkey, vice president for academic affairs/provost.
