2 Penn College students
earn $4,500 in awards
Two Pennsylvania College of Technology construction majors are among 10 students sharing $18,000 in scholarships from the Merit Shop Training and Research Center, presented during a recent meeting of the Keystone Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. board of directors.
Caleb M. Wise, a building automation technology student from Manheim, received $2,500, and Cody A. Sollenberger, a building science and sustainable design: architectural technology concentration major from Lancaster, was awarded $2,000.
The MSTRC, which has given out $371,000 in scholarships over the years, was established by ABC Keystone as an educational and research foundation to assist students who have chosen construction-related career paths. The center is funded by chapter members who have taken upon themselves the responsibility to help men and women prepare for the industry.
"This provides a great opportunity to connect students with industry, not only from a learning environment, but also with constituents who are passionate about continued growth in their respective fields," said Marc E. Bridgens, Penn College's dean of construction and design technologies.
