The Penn College HVAC technology program’s historically strong partnership with Weis Markets continued last month, as students in the commercial refrigeration classes toured a Weis store with members of the chain’s service team – including a number of graduates. The experience gave the students an opportunity to see operation of the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration equipment they covered over the semester. Welcoming the students were Louis J. Frisenda and HVAC alumni Taylor P. Hostler (2010), Nicholas R. Laylon (2008), and John H. Lowe and Stephen J. Reilly (both 1989).

Comments

Barry Lee Kepner (1987 alum!),

Great job, guys! Looks like an awesome day. Very cool that Weis Markets takes the time to spend with Penn College students. There is a severe shortage of refrigeration service technicians, and programs such as this can do nothing but help that situation.

We’ll never share your email with anyone else.
