College Family’s Military Service Recognized on Veterans Day

On this Veterans Day,  PCToday salutes the Pennsylvania College of Technology students, faculty, staff and alumni who have served (or continue to serve) their country.

Members of the campus community are encouraged to say “Thank you” for the military service of their colleagues, recognized through this voluntary honor roll.

Penn College, named a Military Friendly School for the past six years, coordinates veterans education benefits in the Financial Aid Office (Student and Administrative Services Center, first floor) and supports servicemen and women through employment and academic guidance.

A sampling of student veterans gathers on the Klump Academic Center steps with Chester M. Beaver (front row, left), the college’s veterans affairs coordinator, and Paul L. Starkey (back row, center), vice president for academic affairs and provost.
