Kriner attended the ACE Mentor Program’s College Night on Tuesday at the John Wanamaker Building in Philadelphia, where high school students spoke with numerous colleges about opportunities in architecture, construction and engineering. Baker, of Walkersville, Md., and Kriner, of Lancaster, joined faculty member Brad M. Martin to inform prospective students about the Penn College construction management degree. Many students and professionals in attendance never heard of Penn College or ofits prestigious program, so, as part of their senior capstone project, Baker and Kriner are helping recruit students for the four-year construction management major. “Many people do not even know about the degree or understand that construction management is a white-collar job and that there are only 66 accredited programs nationwide,” said Kriner, adding that, after speaking with more than 60 prospective students, the group believes many are interested in the program.
