Nicholas A. Anderson Chosen as ‘Student of the Month’

Nicholas A. AndersonNicholas A. Anderson, a welding and fabrication engineering technology major from Warren, is the Student Government Association’s latest Student of the Month at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

An active participant in Penn College’s Greek community, he is the treasurer of his fraternity Chi Phi and serves as vice president of finance for the Inter-Fraternity Council. He also is a member of the American Welding Society chapter at the college.

“While fulfilling the typical treasurer roles (creating the fall budget, assessing dues, paying bills), this semester he took on the major project of organizing a Silent Auction fundraiser for the all-Greek philanthropy, Habitat for Humanity,” his faculty/staff nominator wrote. “Nick actively arranged a committee with members of every Greek organization for mailing letters to local businesses and collecting donations.” He also contacted a number of on-campus departments and a selection of community interests himself, rounding up items for bid.

“He has demonstrated a high commitment to both academics and to his extracurricular involvement,” the nominator continued, noting that the Habitat benefit was a very successful part of this fall’s Penn College Homecoming activities.

A Student of the Month is selected numerous times each academic year based on commitment, service, role-model behavior, academics, leadership and campus involvement. Nominations from faculty/staff and other students are strongly encouraged.
