Samantha-Jo M. Bradley Earns ‘Student of the Month’ Honors


Samantha-Jo M. Bradley, a baking and pastry arts major from Middlebury Center, has been chosen as the Student of the Month at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

Bradley, who anticipates graduating in May, is a member and secretary of the Penn College Diners Club and serves as a Community Assistant for students in off-campus housing.

“Samantha is very passionate about pride on campus,” her nominator wrote. “She is a great leader in making new students want to be more involved. She is very excited about her degree and supports not only students in her major but in other majors, as well. Penn College should be very proud to have students like this.”

As one of two Community Assistants, Bradley acts as a liaison among students, faculty and landlords. She plans events for students who live in the neighborhoods surrounding campus, including a Lawn Fest in September that attracted about 100 students for free food, games, an inflatable obstacle course, music and more.

She and fellow CA Daniel S. Honovic recently organized a “reverse” trick-or-treating in which they delivered candy to off-campus students. The treat bags were also filled with educational information, including suicide-prevention cards and tips on how to “close” off-campus apartments for the upcoming holiday breaks.

Student Government Association recognition is bestowed numerous times each academic year based on commitment, service, role-model behavior, academics, leadership and campus involvement. Nominations from faculty/staff and other students are strongly encouraged.
