Lugg, coordinator of matriculation and retention for the School of Natural Resources Management, visited students enrolled in the forestry program at Kane Area High School on Thursday to discuss opportunities in Penn College’s forest technology major. Beane shared his college experience with more than 40 high school students throughout the day, and had the opportunity to catch up with his former teacher, Jack Detrick, who commented, “It is always nice to see former students, especially when they are successful.” Beane, who graduated from Kane in 2008, said, “I enjoyed sharing my Penn College experience with students at Kane High School. I’m back home … working a summer job at a forestry consulting business, so I didn’t mind heading to the high school and talking about the forest technology program at Penn College.”
