Corvette Club awards scholarships to two Penn College students


The Susquehanna Valley Corvette Club, which supports Pennsylvania College of Technology students through a pair of scholarship funds, recently honored two more beneficiaries of its generosity.

Students Jacob A. Dock, of Middleburg, enrolled in automotive restoration technology, and Chase T. Fritz, an automotive technology major from Athens, each will receive $2,500 during the 2019-20 school year as the latest recipients of club scholarships.

“Penn College and our students benefit from our partnership with the Susquehanna Valley Corvette Club,” said Kyle A. Smith, executive director of the Penn College Foundation. “The continued passion and commitment they display toward our students is greatly appreciated.”

SVCCThe club, formed in 2003, conducted a summerlong raffle to benefit those scholarship funds. The raffle – for which the grand prize is the winner’s choice of a 2019 Chevy Silverado, a 2019 Corvette or $35,000 in cash – will culminate in a drawing on Saturday, Sept. 21, at the club’s “Corvettes on Main Street” event in Muncy.
