Ten Presented With ‘Penn College Awards’


Ten graduating students who have made outstanding contributions to their campus and surrounding communitywere presented with “Penn College Awards” during a banquet in their honor at Le Jeune Chef Restaurant on Thursday evening.

It was the ninth year for the “Penn College Awards,” which are presented to students who have been actively involved in campus life, have held leadership positions or who have made contributions to the college or community.

This year’s class represents a gamut of such selflessness, including − as outlined by nominators and presenters, both movingly and humorously − Resident Assistants and tutors, military and campus-government service, a youth-camp counselor and computer wizards, Orientation leaders and academic superstars and peer helpers . . . student leaders, all.

They were presented with their awards by Jill Landesberg-Boyle, vice president for student affairs.

  • Joshua M. Appleman, Hanover, computer information technology- data communications and networking ; introduced by Carolyn Strickland, director of student life
