High school students, part of a dual-enrollment accounting class, get a helping hand from instructor JoAnn H. Pacenta in the college’s finance lab Friday.

Thirty-four students from East Lycoming, Jersey Shore Area, Montoursville Area and Williamsport Area high schools – all enrolled in an Introduction to Financial Accounting course through the Penn College NOW program – got a hands-on opportunity Friday to demonstrate what they’ve learned. Coordinated by the college’s Outreach for K-12 Office, the program allows high school students to earn Penn College credits through dual enrollment. JoAnn H. Pacenta, instructor of business administration/accounting in the School of Business and Computer Technologies, helped the students work with Peachtree accounting software to create a sample company and complete a general ledger. The students’ day included lunch in the Capitol Eatery and, for the Williamsport group, a tour of campus.
