Students in instructor Franklin H. Reber’s Concrete Construction lab have built the reinforced forms for the first of three hexagonal pads that will be the basis for Penn College’s Recognition Garden outside the Bush Campus Center. While two other classes will be assigned the remaining pads, this group will return to the site next week to pour concrete. Each of the three sections will eventually hold six vertical pillars, onto which will be installed plaques duplicating the information on deteriorating bricks that now line the main campus entrance off Maynard Street.
