College Team Places Third in National Home Builders’ Competition

A team of five Pennsylvania College of Technology students from the College’s School of Construction and Design Technologies finished third recently in a residential-construction competition organized by the National Association of Home Builders.

The two-day event, which was held in Atlanta, featured competitions for students in secondary schools and two- and four-year college programs. Overall, 38 schools (34 colleges) were represented.

Penn College’s team placed third in the two-year college competition, trailing only Purdue University North Central and Santa Fe Community College (Gainesville, Fla.). The Penn College students are members of the Penn College Construction Association, the student chapter of the NAHB.

The Pennsylvania Builders Association, the West Branch Susquehanna Builders Association and Penn College helped fund travel expenses for the team, which also raised funds of its own for the trip.

The faculty adviser for the group, Richard L. Druckenmiller, instructor of building construction technology, accompanied the students to the competition in Atlanta.

The Penn College students who participated in the competition (and their academic majors) are: Timothy R. Brown, Masury, Ohio, Building Construction Technology; John H. Owen, Shillington, Building Construction Technology; Jason P. Pierce, Harleysville, Architectural Technology; Kevin M. Redfoot, Greenville, Building Construction Technology; and Brian E. Schneider, Churchville, Building Construction Technology.
