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.”
