Students Share Special Thanks With Employee Donors

Student development assistants encouraged peers to share their love of Pennsylvania College of Technology donors in February by delivering birthday greetings, signing “Thank you” cards and expressing gratitude via video message.

“I am always in awe of the gratitude that my classmates and peers have for our generous Penn College donors,” said Ryan Monteleone, lead student development assistant. “Their support enables us to have the best labs with state-of-the-art equipment, in addition to countless scholarship opportunities. I am so glad that we were able to show our thanks during this weeklong campus event.”

“Several employees approached me afterward, thanking me for my message to them,” added Monteleone, an information assurance and cyber security major from Stevens. “Their action reinforces just how much Penn College employees care about our success and us. Their financial support truly helps students earn ‘degrees that work,’ and we look forward to expressing our continued thanks in the future.”
