They say you can learn a lot about the future by being familiar with the past. This statement has never rung more true to me than when I attended a reunion of Williamsport Technical Institute over summer break. (WTI is a forerunner of Pennsylvania College of Technology). I met many awesome alumni whose anecdotes described incredible perseverance, triumph, character and dedication stemming from their alma mater. Their stories proved that I chose the right path by attending Penn College.
