Robert Capps, a 2013 recipient of an Alumni Mentorship Award and a frequent face at campus Career Fairs, returned to Penn College on Friday in a Cobra that he built with his son last year. Capps, of Allan A. Myers (formerly American Infrastructure) and his son, Johnathan L., built the vehicle in their home garage, finishing it just in time for the young man to drive it to his senior prom.  The elder Capps drove it to Williamsport from just outside Philadelphia to meet up with Johnathan and his friends.  Capps’ son is a student in the mechatronics engineering technology major, a member of the Baja SAE Team and a competitor in last weekend’s Green Grand Prix in New York state.
