WTI Alumni Swap Stories, Make New Memories at 16th Reunion

Fifty graduates of Williamsport Technical Institute, a Penn College predecessor that existed under that name from 1941-65, returned Friday for the 16th annual WTI reunion. While on campus, they reminisced with one another, evoking the people and places of the college’s past. With youthful exuberance, they recalled dinners at Danny’s Diner, quotes from favorite instructors and moves to buildings around the community as course offerings evolved. They also heard presentations from students Cortney L. Weaver, a dental hygiene student from Williamsport, and Erik G. Knecht, a manufacturing engineering technology student from Cranesville, who shared information about their academic majors, and student-veterans Cody R. Harriman, an emergency management technology student from Muncy Valley, and Bradly Lantz, a pre-physician assistant student from Cogan Station, who talked with the group about the Penn College experience for veterans. Following a Le Jeune Chef lunch, Emily K. Lutz, an applied management student and hospitality management graduate, guided the group on a tour of the hospitality department’s labs.
