High Steel Structures’ recent donation of nearly $100,000 worth of scrap metal to Penn College prompted a Thursday afternoon visit by WNEP-TV’s Chris Keating to the welding lab. Keating taped a segment that aired during evening newscasts and featured welding and fabrication engineering technology students Michael D. Shoemaker, of Orefield, and Kevin D. Scharba, of Kane; Elizabeth A. Biddle, director of corporate relations; and James N. Colton II, assistant professor of welding.
