Students Tip Cap(stone) to Scholarship Donors in Sweet Fashion

A Grand Pastry Buffet was the centerpiece for the college’s annual scholarship reception, which offers an opportunity for recipients of the more than 200 Penn College scholarships to mingle with and thank those who have funded the scholarships. The event, held Sunday, is the final project for students in the Pastry Food Show and Buffet Presentation Concepts course. For the event, the students synthesized skills they’ve learned throughout their collegiate career, each contributing a sugar art centerpiece, a chocolate sculpture, a cake and a platter of bite-sized confections. As a team, they chose the event’s theme – Earth, Air, Water and Fire – and exercised their event-planning know-how. The course is taught by Chef Todd M. Keeley, instructor of baking and pastry arts/culinary arts. Participating students and their hometowns are: Merissa N. Aucker, of Middleburg; Crystal A. Calaman, of Dushore; Danielle L. Cannon, of Drums; Nathan Diaz, of Reading; Alesha A. Dunlap, of Worthington; Alexis L. Kepley, of Reading; Danielle M. McGuire, of Quakertown; Ally T. Monborne, of Williamsport; Natascha G. Santaella, of Guaynabo, Puerto Rico; Lloyd A. Shope, of Blanchard; Andrea L. Solenberger, of Harrisburg; Keegan D. Sonney, of Erie; Sarah I. Tielmann, of Tatamy; Katie M. Weakland, of Pennsylvania Furnace; and Adelyn A. Zimmerman, of Orwigsburg.
