Approximately 500 students, 20 from each registered school, participated each day. Steven K.McCoy and Melissa M. Stocum, coordinators of matriculation and retention for the schools of Constructionand Design Technologies and Natural Resources Management, respectively, spoke with hundreds of students, vocational instructors and guidance counselors about the various construction-related degree options available at Penn College.
