Adherence to Penn College’s COVID-19 guidelines, particularly the donning of face coverings, is paying off for several students.

Under an incentive program overseen by the Office of Student Engagement, students may be handed a card for properly wearing their masks while walking across campus. Each of those students is asked to fill out the back of the card and return it to the Bush Campus Center Information Desk to be entered into monthly prize drawings.

Thank you!September’s winners:

  • Juvy A. Orillaza, of Carlisle, applied health studies: occupational therapy assistant concentration – Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet (first prize)
  • David Patrushev, of Newmanstown, automotive technology: Honda PACT emphasis – $50 Amazon gift card (second prize)
  • Andy P. Luzeckyj Jr., of Southampton, automotive technology management – $25 Burger King gift card (third prize)
