Grads’ Gleaming Accomplishments Make Season Bright

With abundant smiles easily cutting through the drizzle (and one of the most buoyantly boisterous crowds in memory), Pennsylvania College of Technology held its final commencement ceremony of 2013 Saturday for nearly 300 students who petitioned to graduate following the fall semester. The student speaker for the 11 a.m. proceedings in the Community Arts Center was Eric J. Palanko, of Latrobe, who was awarded a bachelor’s degree in legal assistant/paralegal studies. In addition to honoring the day’s capped-and-gowned VIPs, the college recognized a 2004 graduate with an Alumni Achievement Award.
