Congratulations to Rose Street resident Kevin Werkheiser, the first to correctly find the Recyclemania banner (currently in the Susquehanna Room)! Werkheiser is doing his part by making sure recycling is happening in his apartment. Students: Keep an eye out, as the banner soon will be moved, creating another opportunity to win. When you spot the banner in the new location, simply e-mail Tiffany James, Recyclemania Team student leader . State your name, where you live, where you spotted the banner and what you are doing to promote recycling at Penn College. The first person to e-mail each time the banner is moved wins a pizza from Penn Central.

The Residence Life Officethanks everyone who has taken action to contribute to the college’s recycling efforts. Keep up the great work with recycling! Since the start of this semester, the amount of material recycled at Penn College has increased dramatically.
