John R. Greenwood, a manufacturing engineering technology major from Harrisburg joined by his parents, Robert and Barbara; cross-country coach Mike Paulhamus, and members of the college’s “Blue Crew” received the money from Bradley T. Robinson, president of the college’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee. The organization decided last semester to conduct a fundraiser to help with the family’s medical bills; the $1,000 represents proceeds from the sale of 200 “Blue Crew” T-shirts in only two weeks. Greenwood was a member of the SAAC from Fall 2007-Spring 2009. Photos by Jessica L. Tobias, student photographer
