Construction Faculty Featured in HELP Grant Video


http://www.nationalhousingendowment.org/showpage_details.aspx?showPageID=17352Penn College is included in a National Housing Endowment video that highlights this year’s recipients of Homebuilding Education Leadership Program funding. The college was awarded a $73,838 HELP grant in February after a yearlong effort by Levon A. Whitmyer and Barney A. Kahn IV, building construction technology instructors, and Carol A. Lugg, now dean of construction and design technologies. The seven-minute video, posted to the NHE website, includes interviews with Whitmyer and Kahn (beginning at about the 3:55 mark). The HELP initiative began more than a decade ago, encouraging colleges and universities to create, expand and enhance residential construction management programs.
