The creativity on display in the holiday cards arrayed along the campus mall was honored in a traditional (and traditionally rainy) lighting ceremony inside and outside the Breuder Advanced Technology and Health Sciences Center on Wednesday night. The Penn College Veterans Club claimed the top prize among student groups: $200 for its organizational account. The Penn College Construction Association was second ($150) and Cru, third ($100). In the Offices and Departments category, first place went to Mail & Document Services, participating employees of which will be served lunch at Le Jeune Chef Restaurant. Madigan Library was second and The College Store placed third; each of those winners will be treated to breakfast at Le Jeune Chef. The winners were selected by the 615 faculty/staff and student voters who chose their favorites in online balloting over the past week.
