Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Residence Life Office has announced the latest selections in its ongoing program to recognize outstanding campus leaders and the work they do on behalf of their fellow students.

Mary Jo NonnemacherResident Assistant of the MonthChosen as the Resident Assistant of the Month for March was Mary Jo Nonnemacher, a nursing student from Bethlehem, in her second year as an RA at the Rose Street Apartments.

“The RA of the Month has been very involved during her time on campus from being a diligent student and a dedicated RA to participating in school organizations such as WEB (Wildcat Events Board) and SGA (Student Government Association),” Residence Life officials wrote. “She has been an RA for several years and brings a great attitude and sense of humor to the staff.”

Kaitlyn M. CharmburyRising Star of the MonthThe March honoree for Rising Star of the Month was Kaitlyn M. Charmbury, a first-year RA in The Village at Penn College. A residential construction technology and management major from State College, she was lauded for her yearlong consistency.

“(Charmbury) has held a great rapport with her residents and has gone above and beyond in the area of programming,” office staff noted. “She is very enthusiastic about Residence Life and represents herself as a student leader all over campus and as a volunteer in the Williamsport community. She is task-oriented, creative and thoughtful, and manages her time extremely well.”

Ashlin R. HollingerEducational Program of the Month Ashlin R. Hollinger, a first-year Resident Assistant from Columbia, organized the Educational Program of the Month: “Floor Pong.” A plastics and polymer engineering technology major, Hollinger put together a program that was both successful and fun for participants.

“Because this sport is not quite popular yet, he worked to record a video to put on YouTube that explained how to play Floor Pong. This RA worked with multiple departments in order to get the video out to students and to reserve the Field House for the event,” staff wrote. “This RA had almost 25 residents attend and commented that, at the end of the program, they wanted to play another tournament. This RA worked hard, met deadlines and was innovative in his programming efforts.”

Megan R. PenningtonSocial Program of the MonthMegan R. Pennington, a graphic design major and first-year RA at The Village, was praised for her Social Program of the Month – “Apples to Apples” – which grew out of her desire to have some laughs with her residents.

“She created a program based on the game, Apples to Apples, in our Village office. She gave away apples as prizes and did a nice job overall in organizing and planning for the program,” staff said. “She had about 13 residents in attendance and the grand prize was a $25 gift certificate to the College Store.
