Magdalena M. Szczesna and Christopher D. Erdman were appointed co-chairs of the project. As the Fall 08 semester began, SIFE formed a committee of students who would assist in completing this project. The following members volunteered: Dustin R. Derr, Richard B. Seymore, Christopher M. DiStasio, Jacalyn L. Doyle, Kaitlyn M. Kennedy, Brittany L. Lambert, Justin D. Kauffman and Lindsay N. Thrush. This is just one example of how Penn College SIFE is making a difference in the community. Volunteers always are needed for new projects and initiatives to help strengthen the local community on topics relating to market economics, business ethics, financial literacy, environmental sustainability, entrepreneurship and success skills. For more information, stop by one of SIFE’s weekly meetings, held from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Tuesdays in ATHS, Room E255. ( Photos by Dustin R. Derr, SIFE president)
