Plastics News has included a second Penn College graduate among its “Rising Stars” in the industry: Matthew K. Peterman, who earned a bachelor’s degree in plastics and polymer engineering technology in May. Peterman, an award-winning Resident Assistant during his Penn College years, is a manufacturing development engineer/operations rotation engineer with TE Connectivity Ltd. in Winston-Salem, N.C. “Look around and grasp fully how much of your everyday life is affected by plastics,” the Phoenixville native said. “If you can understand that plastics has driven the advancement of our society since its initial introduction, then you will understand how amazing it can be to be part of the industry. The only limit in the plastics industry is how far you want to go and how much you want to put into it.” As reported earlier, classmate Ryan N. Troiano was also selected.
