Year-End Tradition Honors Students, Organizations for Exemplary Service

The annual Student Activities Awards Banquet recently honored student organizations, student leaders and advisers for their contributions to the Penn College campus and the greater Williamsport community during the 2014-15 academic year. The guest speaker was Barbara Hudock, CEO and founding partner of the Hudock Capital Group, LLC, who shared stories and experiences that have helped shape her leadership over the course of an extremely successful career. More than 50 nominations were received for fewer than 20 honors, including two new awards in this year’s ceremony: Student Leader Committed to Social Justice and Diversity, and Penn College Community Betterment Program of the Year. The annual passing-of-the-gavel ceremony closed out the evening as Zachary T. Peachey was sworn in as the Student Government Association president for the 2015-16 academic year.
