Presidential Student Ambassadors promote college pride


Sixteen students are serving as Presidential Student Ambassadors for the 2019-20 academic year at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

Selected for their demonstration of leadership, campus involvement, academic achievement and college pride, the student ambassadors act as liaisons between Penn College and prospective and current students and their families, guests, alumni, industry partners and friends of the college.

“Our ambassadors are a critical part of the admissions team,” said Jen M. Cullin-Hetrick, coordinator of admissions events and communications. “Not only do they provide a welcoming face, but also the student perspective for visitors to campus. When they’re not giving tours or helping our events run smoothly, they provide much-needed office support. We couldn’t be successful without their support!”

Hendrickson, software development and information management, Cowansville; Lindsey A. King, applied health studies: occupational therapy assistant concentration, Hanover; Zachary J.
