Scouts gain new skills, acquire merit badges

Boy Scouts from several Pennsylvania councils – and some from surrounding states – made their way to campus on Feb. 19 for Merit Badge College, during which they had their choice of 19 merit badge offerings. Expertise for the hands-on sessions – which ranged from two to six hours – was provided by Penn College faculty, who led the learning activities. Topics covered all three of the college’s academic schools, from drafting to soil and water conservation, and from dentistry to welding.
