Plastics Student Receives Plastics Engineers Scholarship

A Pennsylvania College of Technology student was named the 2012 recipient of the Society of Plastics Engineers’ Thermoforming Division Memorial Scholarship.

Harry P. Koshulsky, of Branchdale, who received the $2,000 scholarship, is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in plastics and polymer engineering technology.

He has been a member of the Society of Plastics Engineers Student Chapter at Penn College since his freshman year and a member of the society’s national chapter since his sophomore year. He has served the student chapter as fundraising chairman and co-chairman.

Through the college’s Penn College NOW dual-enrollment program, Koshulsky, now a senior, earned nine Penn College credits while in high school.

During his summer break, Koshulsky works in the Injection Molding Department at TE Connectivity, formerly Tyco Electronics, where his job responsibilities range from basic operation of three molding presses to inspecting parts to pulling and setting molds.
