Graphic Communications Students Receive Scholarships

Two graphic communications management majors at Pennsylvania College of Technology have been selected to receive scholarships totaling more than $10,000.

John R. Yogodzinksi III, a senior from Harvey’s Lake, was the recipient of several scholarships: $2,000 from the Electronic Document Systems Foundation, $5,000 from the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute, and $2,000 from the Foundation of Flexographic Technical Association (for the second consecutive year). He also received a $750 employee appreciation award from Offset Paperback, a northcentral Pennsylvania printing firm for which he was a summer intern.

Yogodzinski serves as president of Penn College’s Gamma Epsilon Tau chapter, a professional fraternity representing the graphic communications industry.

Also receiving scholarships was Daniel Z. Mast, a junior from Morgantown. Mast received a $1,000 scholarship from the Electronic Document Systems Foundation Board of Directors and a $1,500 scholarship from the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation, given by the Baldwin Technology Corp., a manufacturer of printing equipment.

“Our students have traditionally done well in scholarship competitions and have competed very well with students from other institutions,” said James P. Lentz, associate professor of graphic communications. “These scholarships represent some of the highest monetary awards and number of scholarships received by any of our students. We are very pleased with their efforts and accomplishments.”
