College’s Industrial Outreach Highlighted in Magazine

Penn College’s record of serving employers’ needs – from credit offerings in long-established fields to workforce development in the emerging natural gas industry – is featured in the August issue of Business Magazine, a publication of Manufacturer & Business Association.  “To escape a crippling recession and jump-start the engines of industry, the United States must educate and inspire the work force now,” the cover story relates. “Fortunately, one of the nation’s premier technology colleges already has boots on the ground across the Commonwealth – in the form of expertise and training that delivers quality results for industry.”
