The Knightly News Media Club at Central Penn College is excited to release our most recent podcast, Episode #39, featuring Admissions Counselor Curtis Voelker discussing the recent Men’s Leadership Retreat and Associate Residence Life Director Dillon Epler talking about how students can get involved in the Nov. 7 general election.
During the first segment, Voelker is also joined by Knightly News Correspondent Daylin Davis, a student who attended the Men’s Leadership Retreat.
They discussed the event, held at Diakon Wilderness Center in Boiling Springs, PA, with the theme of “leaving a legacy at Central Penn”.
Davis noted, “As a leader (on the Knights Men’s Basketball team), I have to give the work ethic that my teammates demand…I have to set an example and set the tone on the team.”
Davis was also quick to note that this opportunity provided him with a great deal of experience that he will be able to use immediately, both on and off the court.
Voelker and Epler led the retreat, something that means a lot to both of the individuals on both a personal and professional level.
During the second segment of the show, Epler joined the podcast to discuss the upcoming general election on Nov. 7, as well as discussing what Central Penn College is doing to promote participation in the election for our students.
Epler noted that while this isn’t a presidential or midterm election, making important decisions about your state and local officials has a much clearer impact on our students.
The Office of Residence Life will also be distributing information about the candidates on the ballot, will offer a shuttle to take students to the polls, and has plans for an open-forum event prior to the election to educate the students about the process.
