High School Students Hone Leadership Skills in Penn College Program


College President Davie Jane Gilmour outlines the day's agenda Student leaders gather outside the Bush Campus Center More than two dozen students from area high schools reconvened in the Bush Campus Center on Wednesday for a continuation of the Penn College Youth Leadership program. Each of four breakout groupspaid a community-service visit to a local nonprofit agency Hope Enterprises, Sojourner Truth Ministries, the Williamsport YWCA or the American Rescue Workers before returning to campus for lunch and “group sharing” of their experiences. In coming months, the teenagers will continue team-building exercises and other activities designed to improve communication and foster leadership traits; a graduation ceremony will be held in early May. Facilitators for the program are Davie Jane Gilmour, college president; William J. Martin, senior vice president; Dennis L. Correll, associate dean of admissions and financial aid; Elizabeth G. Verbos, coordinator of admissions and enrollment event services; and Elliott Strickland, interim chief student affairs officer.
