Two acts in the “Penn College Star” competition advanced to next month’s second round and three others earned an automatic bid into November’s third and final show on the basis of their performances at Wednesday’s premiere event in the Dauphin Hall lobby. Moving on to Round Two, which will be held at 6 p.m. Oct. 21 in Penn’s Inn, were George W. Settle III, a welding and fabrication engineering technology student from Dillsburg, who presented a “musical pec dance,” and singer Rebecca P. Slack, a web and interactive media major from Morrisville. They will meet “wild card” acts at the next level, after which judges will decide who advances to the finals in the Klump Academic Center Auditorium. Already moved on were Kimberly S. Filko, a graphic design student from State College, who performed a clog dance; and singer/guitarists Chad M. Austin, of Eldred, who majors in heavy construction equipment technology: technician emphasis, and Benjamin J. Leskovansky, of Bellefonte, enrolled in information technology sciences – gaming and simulation. With $500 in prizes on the line, the competition – sponsored by Student Activities, the Residence Life Office and the Off-Campus Housing Organization – culminates in the 6 p.m. Nov. 21  finale in Klump Academic Center Auditorium finale with $500 in prizes.
