The Susquehanna Chapter of the Pennsylvania Society of Land Surveyors recently hosted its Ed Dobeck Memorial Award dinner meeting, an annual event that enables regional land surveyors to welcome Penn College surveying technology students into the profession.

Chapter President Bradley A. Ziegler, a Sunbury-based Professional Land Surveyor, opened the April 4 meeting; Howard D. Taylor, a PLS from Shamokin, honored the legacy of the late Edward W. Dobeck Jr., a widely respected land surveyor who contributed to PSLS and his community, and mentored many in the room. Dobeck’s widow, JoAnn, was again in attendance.

Glenn C. “Cody” Johnson, of Sweet Valley, Luzerne County, is this year’s recipient of the 2019 Ed Dobeck Memorial Award. The honor recognizes a surveying student who has demonstrated academic achievement, leadership, extracurricular activity and professionalism. Johnson is set to graduate May 18 with an associate degree in surveying technology.
