The Penn College Women in Construction club is remembering one of its own, showcasing a late classmate’s work on the second floor of the Hager Lifelong Education Center.

Ashley D. Gentile-Wing was pursuing an associate degree in architecture and bachelor’s in residential construction technology & management when she died in a March 6 vehicle accident in Maine. (Both degrees were posthumously awarded by former President Davie Jane Gilmour during the college’s Spring 2022 commencement ceremonies.)

The student organization framed one of Gentile-Wing’s final designs, a poster depicting the San Giovanni Chapel in Val di Lago, Italy, and will hang it on a south wall near the architecture department.
