College Presents Humanitarian/Citizenship Award to Alumnus


Pennsylvania College of Technology has presented an Alumni Humanitarian/Citizenship Award to Raymond R. Mattie.

The presentation, made by Penn College President Davie Jane Gilmour, took place during a Winter Commencement ceremony held Dec. 22 at the Community Arts Center, Williamsport.

The Alumni Humanitarian/Citizenship Award is bestowed upon graduates of Penn College or its predecessor institutions – Williamsport Area Community College and Williamsport Technical Institute – who have provided distinguished community or volunteer service and presented themselves as dedicated and loyal alumni.

Mattie, a 1984 alumnus of the college’s machinist general program, is owner of M&S Conversion Co. and CSM Realty LLC, Montoursville. He serves on the board of directors for Citizens & Northern Bank, Hope Enterprises Foundation Inc. and the Penn College Foundation.

He and his wife, Michelle, have established the Mattie Family Scholarship at the college, which generates awards to Lycoming County students enrolled in the final year of the occupational therapy assistant or early childhood education associate-degree majors.

The Matties’ two sons, Connor and Sam, are also learning the importance of giving back to their community, participating in an annual lemonade-stand fundraiser to benefit Hope Early Intervention Services for children from the area.

The couple also continues to support the educational needs of Lycoming County youth with Connor’s Connection.

Founded by the Mattie family, and named for Connor, who has autism, Connor’s Connection provides grants for activities, supplies and technology to help autistic youth become successful students.
