Penn College ‘Sweethearts’ Win Alumni Contest

Nearly 13 years after they first met on campus, a Pennsylvania College of Technology alumni couple will return to celebrate Valentine’s weekend.

Jolene T. and Jason A. Furl, of Gambrills, Md., have been selected as winners of the Alumni Relations Office’s “Sweethearts’ Contest.” The Furls, married for eight years, will be treated to dinner in the college’s Le Jeune Chef Restaurant and an overnight stay at the Victorian House on campus.

The Alumni Relations Office recently invited alumni couples to share their love stories as part of its Sweethearts’ Contest. The Furls’ essay was selected as the winning story and is available for viewing, complete with photos, on the Alumni Relations website.

“The Alumni Sweetheart Contest gives us the opportunity to reconnect alumni to campus and share their stories and successes with the college community,” said Becky J. Shaner, alumni relations assistant. “We are excited to welcome the Furls back to campus, a place that has had such a positive influence on their lives.”

The former Jolene Nunn earned a Bachelor of Science in applied human services in 2003. After graduating, she was a residence life coordinator in The Village at Penn College apartments. She is now a Pampered Chef consultant.

After serving in Iraq, Jason completed a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering technology. He is a project manager with STRUCTURAL, formerly Structural Preservation Systems, based in Maryland.

As the college continues its Countdown to the Centennial,  the Alumni Relations Office encourages all alumni to share their stories and memories on the college’s Centennial website.

In 2014, the institution will mark the 100th anniversary of adult-education classes on the site of the college’s main campus in Williamsport.
