In the latest edition of the Knightly News Podcast, the show welcomes Central Penn College alumna and former SGA President Kendra Elliott.
Elliott is currently the Director Of Program & Development, Lebanon County at Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region, a position that she says is extremely rewarding.
She claims that her non-profit requirement while in school directly influenced her decision to spend her career in non-profits.
She said of her time volunteering at the college, “I didn’t really do a lot of work with non-profits prior (to coming to college). It was an opportunity to connect with people, and there are opportunities to meet people who can help you.”
Elliott has three different degrees from the college: an associate degree in Entrepreneurship and Small Business, a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration – Management, and a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration – Human Resource Management.
Also joining the podcast is current SGA President and Vice President of the Knightly News Yuliani Sutedjo.
Sutedjo discussed her first initiative in detail, having the lunch and dinner menu available everyday on the Central Penn College SGA Facebook page, located at https://www.facebook.com/CentralPennSGA.
The two also discussed the current state of the SGA, how the SGA was reincarnated over the last several years with the assistance of Central Penn College Professor Robert Donley, and future initiatives for student government.
The Knightly News would like to sincerely congratulate Elliott on her most recent position, as we are proud of the growth she has seen in her career.
