Future Manufacturing Engineers Earn National Scholarships


Three Pennsylvania College of Technology students have been honored with highly competitive scholarships from the national Society of Manufacturing Engineers. The students are enrolled in the College’s manufacturing engineering technology bachelor of science degree major.

The SME Education Foundation Board of Directors awarded 1998 Wayne Kay Scholarship Awards to Graham Hantz, of Coplay, and James J. Mikulski, Montoursville, formerly of Mahanoy City. Each student received $2,500. Only 10 of these scholarships were awarded by the SME, with other national recipients hailing from such schools as Rochester Institute of Technology and Michigan State University.

The SME also chose five students throughout the country to receive its 1998 Caterpillar Scholarship Awards. Penn College student Bernard E. Kammerdiener Jr., of Tamaqua, was selected to receive $2,000.
