M. Abraham Harpster, the newest member of the Pennsylvania College of Technology Board of Directors, got further acquainted during an enlightening institutional visit Thursday. After lunch at Le Jeune Chef and a stroll through the restaurant’s kitchens, Harpster embarked on a wide-ranging tour that included plastics, welding and collision repair/restoration labs. The group – which included state Sen. Gene Yaw, board chairman; President Davie Jane Gilmour; Paul L. Starkey, vice president for academic affairs/provost; Suzanne T. Stopper, senior vice president for finance/chief financial officer; and Patrick Marty, chief of staff/assistant to the president for college relations – also talked with manufacturing students on the Baja SAE team and stopped by Dauphin Hall.
