As they have done so often over the years, Penn College construction students applied their lab instruction to a real-world campus project on Wednesday. Building construction technology instructor Franklin H. Reber Jr. and students in his Concrete Construction class repaired walkways on the west side of the mall, undoing damage done when underground utilities were accessed. Reber was the driving force behind the college’s two-year degree in concrete science technology, initiated in Fall 2018 as the only such program on the East Coast.
