Five Students Receive Print-Graphics Scholarships

Five students in the Printing and Publishing Technology and Graphic Design bachelor-degree majors at Pennsylvania College of Technology have been chosen to receive scholarships totaling $5,300 from the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation.

The Penn College scholarship recipients were among 260 students nationwide who were selected from a pool of 1,500 applicants at 150 accredited schools.

The five Penn College students, their academic majors and scholarship amounts are: William D. Finerty, Newark, Del., Printing and Publishing Technology, $1,000; Christopher J. Legarski, Montoursville , Graphic Design, $1,000; Mark B. Liddle, Pottsville, Printing and Publishing Technology, $900; Beth L. Rozman, Lititz, Graphic Design, $1,200; and Marie A. Szabo, Bethlehem, Printing and Publishing Technology, $1,200.

The PGSF, a nonprofit organization affiliated with the Graphic Arts Technical Foundation, was formed in 1956 to strengthen the printing and graphic-communications industry by providing scholarship assistance to students preparing to enter the field.

The scholarship candidates are judged on the basis of their high school and college academic records and honors; recommendations from counselors, advisers and teachers; and extracurricular interests. A committee of educators and industry leaders selects the recipients. The scholarships may be renewed annually if the students maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average and continue in printing or graphic-communications majors .
