Homecoming King and Queen Selected; $1,120 Raised for Charity


Shawn M. Strohman and Jami O. DiMichele were chosen as the 2001 Homecoming King and Queen recently at Pennsylvania College of Technology, raising $1,120 for charity in the process.

Students “voted” for Homecoming King and Queen by placing money in the jars of their favorite candidates among 21 nominees. Strohman and DiMichele raised the most funds and were named Homecoming King and Queen. The money collected will be divided equally between the two charities they designated.

Strohman, who represented the Resident Assistants at Campus View Apartments, chose the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation as his charity recipient. DiMichele, who represented the Student Government Association at Penn College, designated the American Red Cross to receive her share of the funds.

Strohman, of Altoona, is a student in the Construction Management bachelor-degree program at Penn College. DiMichele, of Trout Run, is enrolled in the Dietary Manager Technology associate-degree program.
