On a campus widely known for hands-on instruction, it’s not surprising that Thursday’s 21st annual “Take Our Daughters & Sons to Work Day” would provide opportunities for young visitors to roll up their sleeves for the tasks at hand. Honoring the theme of “Plant a Seed, Grow a Future,” Penn College employees’ children learned about trees and related careers, and explored another kind of “green” through preparing personalized tossed salads with their own signature dressing. The day also included a get-acquainted session in the Field House, a welcome from President Davie Jane Gilmour, a campus tour, lunch in Dauphin Hall and job-shadowing.
