Students Bring ‘Green’ Sensibility to Parade Route

The entire class poses for a 'green' group photo David Dontigny, with the sun on his head and a wind turbine in his hand  Mark Stabley, as a 'green' house that employs solar power and rainwater recycling Erica Schreffler, as a compact fluorescent light bulb Katelyn Roskosky, as an energy-efficient/sustainable building with a solar path on topStudents in Geoffrey M. Campbell’s 300-level Passive Design studio class were asked to fashion a parade costume that would be representative of Penn College’s building science and sustainable design major. They were given the assignment last Monday and the costumes were due Wednesday. According to Campbell, an assistant professor of architectural technology (who also provided the photos), the idea was that the designer of the best costume would get to ride the Penn College float in Thursday’s Grand Slam Parade to kick off the Little League Baseball World Series. The students voted for their favorite three designs. David Dontigny’s was the top vote-getter, but he was unable to participate in the parade. Instead, Erica Schreffler (who took second place) wore Dontigny’s costume and was joined on the float by Ashley Beatty, who also was among the top vote-getters.
