Spring 2011 Commencement


Spring Commencement exercises were held May 13-14 at Williamsport’s Community Arts Center for nearly 950 students graduating from Pennsylvania College of Technology. Friday’s 3 p.m. ceremony celebrated students from the schools of Construction and Design Technologies, and Health Sciences; the 10 a.m. Saturday session focused on the schools of Business and Computer Technologies, Hospitality, and Transportation Technology; and Saturday’s 1:30 p.m. festivities honored the schools of Industrial and Engineering Technologies, Integrated Studies, and Natural Resources Management.. Student speakers, respectively, were Adam J. Yoder, of Allensville, building automation technology; Sarah R. Shott, of Tresckow, information technology: web and applications development; and Kevin T. Werkheiser, of Northampton, manufacturing engineering technology. The college also bestowed two Excellence in Teaching Awards and three alumni awards, and conferred a posthumous degree upon a student whose tragic death spurred an unprecedented campus legacy.
