The Student Government Association (SGA) last week had its 2018 elections. The student body decided who they wanted to see them represent their voice.

The students voted for president, vice president, secretary and online delegate.

The president nominees were Morgan Littleford and Johnathan Noss.

The other three positions were for only a single contestant each.

Vice president was Isaiah Scott, secretary was Christine Donaghy and online delegate was Angelina Stillman.

Littleford and Noss were looking to replace 2017 President Yuliani Sutedjo. Sutedjo had done many great activities during the 2017 school year. She brought many great ideas, and was really involved on and off campus. She will be dearly missed at the school, and we all appreciate the service she has done.

 SGA speech panel

The students had an opportunity to meet the candidates on Nov. 7 in the Capital BlueCross Theatre. The candidates were trying to persuade the audience about why they deserve votes.

Littleford brought up how she has a lot of experience with being the 2017 vice president and being involved in SGA since she has been on campus.

Noss talked about how he has been devoted and committed to many organizations, which include: Christian church groups, grocery store manager and construction.

They both talked about how they are for the on and off campus students, and how the candidates want to make the school better.

“I think the SGA kickoff went exceptionally well,” Littleford said. “Each candidate articulated what they can do for the campus. This school would be lucky to have any of us represent them.”

Noss thought that the panel was a very good experience for not just the students, but for the candidates as well.

Noss said, “We all have unique stories of successes and failures, and for me, it was inspiring to hear those stories being told today.”

They both said that they are committed to work with future and current faculty, and they want to find a way to make the students happier with the cafeteria.

“One of the main things I would do as president is to make sure the quality of food is better in the Knight & Day Café,” said Littleford.

Littleford added that she will work closely with Sutedjo to make sure she picks up where the outgoing president left off.

Results

The voting started on Nov. 7, and ended on Nov. 10, at midnight.

Littleford defeated Noss to become president.

Scott, Donaghy and Stillman each won the positions they ran for – vice president, secretary and online delegate.

According to SGA adviser Adrienne Thoman, Littleford got 63 percent of 43 votes cast for president, for a total of 27, leaving 16 for Noss.

Scott received 41, and Donaghy and Stillman each received 42 votes.

Thoman said the candidates will have a formal inauguration by the end of the term, and assume office then.

Thank you, Dr. Scolforo

Editor’s note: The following is an editorial by Student Government President Yuliani Sutedjo. The opinion is hers, and does not necessarily reflect the opinions of The Knightly News or its staff, and is not an endorsement. Sutedjo is also vice president of The Knightly News.

By Yuliani Sutedjo

Karen M. Scolforo, the ninth president of Central Penn College, resigned on Sept. 15.

She said in several communications to faculty, staff and students that she decided to resign because she needed to live closer to her mother, who is ailing.

“I made the decision to apply with the goal of moving closer to my ailing mother, and to provide some support for my sister, who serves as her sole care provider,” Scolforo said in Central Station email on Sept. 4.

Scolforo will become president of Castleton University, in Vermont, in early December.

During Scolforo’s tenure, from 2013, she accomplished many things.

Below are a few of those accomplishments listed on her curriculum vitae (CV):

  • She built The Underground, which provides students the ability to relax and have some fun. The building consists of the Capital BlueCross Theatre, offices, a gym, the Student Government Association office, a dance studio and the student lounge.
  • She also redesigned the new health science building, called the Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Health Sciences Building.
  • Expanded academic programs, including four new medical bachelor degrees and three graduate-level options.
  • Established the Center for Global Education and Cultural Inclusion.
  • Increased underrepresented populations by 30 percent in staff and faculty.
  • Installation of a gender-neutral restroom.

Besides these achievements, she received many awards for being involved in the community. Below are some of them listed on her (CV):

  • Century Link Business Woman of the Year, 2017.
  • YWCA Woman of Excellence, 2017.
  • Central Penn Business Journal Executive Leadership Team (president and cabinet) nominee, 2016.
  • Women’s Conference Care to Share, 2017.
  • Central Penn Business Journal Woman of Influence, 2016.
  • Carlisle Chamber of Commerce Business Woman of the Year nominee, 2015, 2016, 2017.
  • West Shore Chamber of Commerce Prestigious Visionary Luminary, 2015.
  • U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce, Women Who Thrive, 2015.

As the president of the Student Government Association, I want to thank you for all the work you did.

Your accomplishments and awards have been helpful for our students and made Central Penn College grow bigger with the many connections you made.

Thank you for making The Underground a reality. Students get to experience the world of theater, are able to exercise and have a place to hang out.

The time you took to have monthly meetings with the Student Government Association was helpful for us to allow direct communication with you about student concerns.

Thank you for taking time to support the events that happened on campus, such as coming to many basketball home games and some away games, coming to see the student-created play and some other plays held at the Capital BlueCross Theatre, coming to some of the poetry contests in The Underground, and other events.

I wish you all the best at Castleton University, and reuniting with your mom and sister.

President Scolforo resigns

By Yuliani Sutedjo

Knightly News Reporter

Karen M. Scolforo, Central Penn’s ninth president, resigned Friday morning.

Scolforo, who was appointed president in mid-2013, said in a posting on her Facebook page, and later in a special edition of the college’s employee newsletter, Central Station, distributed at 10:20 a.m., “the Board (of directors) has agreed to accept my resignation, and to enact a well-thought out transition plan.”

The announcement was also made Friday in the student email newsletter Student Central.

Scolforo announced in an email to faculty and staff during the first week of September, and also in Central Station, that she had applied for a job as president of a university in New England, for family reasons.

“Many of you have heard me tout a family first mantra, and many have appreciated the support I’ve provided in this regard for all of our Central Penn College family members,” Scolforo wrote in the special edition of Central Station on Friday. “You’ll recall that on September 5th I published a special edition of Central Station to notify you of my decision to apply to a position closer to my family.”

On Friday afternoon, after she had left campus, Scolforo told The Knightly News: “My mother is sick, and I want to be closer to her, and help my family. I miss everyone (at Central Penn).”

Scolforo had applied to Castleton University, part of the Vermont university system, which has about full-time 2,000 students, in Castleton, Vt. She is one of three candidates, according to Castleton’s website.

Carol Wilson Spigner, D.S.W., chair of Central Penn’s board of directors, also told The Knightly News on Friday that Scolforo decided to resign for family reasons.

Scolforo declined Friday to address her candidacy at Castleton, but she said in her early-September message to the Central Penn community that the Castleton board of directors plans to make a decision by Oct. 1.

“Dr. Karen M. Scolforo has resigned from the presidency of Central Penn College for personal reasons,” the board of directors said in a message in Central Station Friday. “Dr. Linda Fedrizzi-Williams, vice president of academic affairs and Richard Varmecky, chief financial officer will serve as interim co-presidents and Carol W. Spigner, D.S.W. will serve as executive director of the college on behalf of the board. This team will provide continuity and stability during this period of transition. The Central Penn College board of directors will begin the process of selecting the next leader immediately.”

Scolforo applied to Castleton in late June. From Sept.11 through 13, she visited Castleton University, and gave a live presentation on the 13th. Some Central Penn College faculty and staff watched the Web broadcast of Scolforo’s presentation.

During her tenure, according to her curriculum vitae, Scolforo achieved many accomplishments for Central Penn, including:

  • Building The Underground, which includes the Capital BlueCross Theatre, a dance studio she sponsored, a weight room, student lounge and student government and other offices
  • Installation of a health-sciences building
  • Appointment of the school’s first diversity officer
  • Appointment of the school’s first Title IX and compliance officers

Knight Owl always-open computer lab for students nests in Bollinger

By Brian Christiana, Amor Duran, Nasi Hayes, Katina Hocker, Laura Lee, Megan Smith, Quinyece Walker and Joel Zola

Students of COM 140, Summer 2017

Special to The Knightly News

In August, Central Penn College opened in Bollinger Hall what sources contacted for this story believe is the school’s first  24-hour, seven-day-a-week computer lab for students.

Students seem to like the additional resource, which includes 21 computers and a printer.

“It is great for the students that live in the apartments and Super Suites,” Student Government Association President Yuliani Sutedjo, a corporate communication major, said.

Valeri Hartman, IT help desk administrator, said the need for a new computer lab has been growing since the merger of the learning and writing centers at the start of summer term. The merger left students with only the library and Advanced Technology Education Center (ATEC) computer lab, in 300, neither of which is open past 10 p.m.

Because Room 41 was across from the Security Department, IT and other personnel saw a perfect opportunity to make the lab 24-7 access.

The lab is open on holidays, even though the college may be closed, Hartman said. Some resident students remain on campus on holidays.

“One of the challenges professors face is not having enough computers for students both in and out of the classroom,” Hartman said. “We’re trying to find a solution for that.”

Prof. Micaiah Smith-Morris said the Knight Owl Computer Lab is good, because a limit on students’ “time is no longer an issue.”

It is, “Clearly communicating an emphasis on academic achievement,” Smith-Morris said.

Bollinger 41 was selected as the location for the room because of its proximity to the security office. Hartman explained that with the lab being open all night, having the office across the hall will put students at ease no matter the time.

The location also provides convenience for on-campus students who will no longer have to walk cross campus to access a computer.

 

Working on extended support time

IT support is not available at the Knight Owl Computer Lab after 3 p.m. Help is available from the Central Penn IT helpdesk from 8 a.m. to 3.

Hartman understands that’s a problem that needs to be dealt with.

“We are working on it,” Hartman said.

Hartman gave some examples of what IT can do to fix the problem.

“Maybe some of the staff can stay later in the evening, till 8-9,” Hartman said. “It’s just a thought.”

She added there is no deadline for providing on-site IT support after 3 p.m., or whether doing so will be possible.

 

Equipment nuts and bolts

“The computers, monitors, keyboards and mice in the Knight Owl lab are all brand new and include three-year warranties on the hardware,” IT Director Tom Parker said.

IT workers had to re-cable all of Bollinger 41, which had been a classroom without student computers, so the computers could match up with outlets.

“A new network switch was added, and a wireless access point was also added to increase the density of available connections in the room,” Parker wrote in an email.

“The total cost per computer is $695,” according to Parker. “That includes the PC with three-year warranty, monitor, keyboard, mouse and the needed video adapter to connect the monitors.”

The total for computers and their accessories came to $14,595. Parker said the re-cabling, network switch, wireless access point and other accoutrements cost about $6,000. He said the approximately $21,000 spent on the lab came from the IT budget and did not require extra funds. Central Penn recently made fiscal cuts across the college to set a budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

The school tries to buy the same computers that are used in other rooms, but it’s not always possible because hardware changes every year. The computers in the Knight Owl lab are Dell computers and are similar to the 100 computers replaced in 2016 in ATEC, Parker said.

No work should be saved to the computer desktops because the computers delete information stored there overnight, as in the rest of the labs.

A security camera was installed in the room as well. If there are any technical issues overnight or on holidays, then students can submit a helpdesk ticket by emailing to helpdesk@centralpenn.edu  or by calling (866) 291-HELP (4357), and leaving a voicemail explaining what the issue is. Students can expect to receive an email answer during the following day.

Hartman suggested using the OneDrive account through Office 365, and to always log out when finished.

Central Penn All-Star Kendra Elliott Joins Podcast 36

Former SGA President now works in the non-profit sector

By Paul Miller

Knightly News Co-adviser

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.

A group of gallant Knights explores Toronto while lending a helping hand

Four-day odyssey is a learning and living

experience of culture and service

Part one of two.

Story and photos

By Yuliani Sutedjo

Knightly News Reporter

Day 1

TORONTO – Hi, everyone. Follow me in my story on the four-day journey I took with other students and some staff to Canada in April.

Eight Central Penn students, all from the Summerdale campus except one from the Lancaster center, rendezvoused at the college on a day in early April, at 6 a.m., for the annual alternative term-break trip run by the diversity office, to provide community service— in Toronto. Two Central Penn staff members also went on the trip.

It was windy and chilly, and not fully light.

By 6:15 a.m., we hit the road to Canada.

On the way up Interstate 81 through Pennsylvania and into New York state – up, up, up toward Niagara Falls, and Canada – we passed towns and cities, mountains, farms, rivers, lakes and windmills.

We drove on and on, in two cars.

After about 300 miles, we arrived at the Canadian border at about 11:37 a.m.

When we reached the border crossing, the Canadian border guard at the gate asked Megan Cline, Central Penn counselor, some questions such as, where we were from, what we would be doing in Canada, and where we would stay and where we would go while in Canada. The officer’s tone was intense; she seemed like a drill sergeant.

Once through the grilling, and the gate, it took another hour and a half to arrive at the College Backpackers Hostel, in Toronto’s Kensington neighborhood.At 1:30 p.m., we got our room, had a quick nap for an hour, and then came back to meet up around 2:45 to have lunch at the Toronto Eaton Centre mall.

View from hostel window

This is the view from my hostel room window.

Some of us ate Chinese food and others had Indian food, while still others had food from Tim Hortons, a fast-food bistro. After a quick lunch, we explored the mall. The mall has a UNIQLo clothing store, among many others. I looked for some items, and then went to hunt a bubble tea at a place called Chatime. We went back to the hostel around 6.

The day was done. Some of us decided to rest or go to sleep, and some of us decided to watch a movie with Romeo Azondekon, Central Penn’s chief diversity officer. I decided to go to bed around 10 p.m., and skip the movie.

 

Day 2

It was like the day before when we left Pennsylvania – cloudy, windy and raining, but we set out for our destination. The group of us arrived at the North York Harvest Food Bank around 9:50 a.m. We were greeted by Leslie Venturainol and Kadian Clarke. In the food bank, we had the chance to volunteer. Our task was to look for a good can of food, make sure the food was not expired and then to put it in the right storage box. We were proud to volunteer and feed 100 families.

The day wasn’t over then, though. We were very hungry and decided to buy lunch at the Eaton Centre, around 1 p.m. Right after lunch, Belinda Rivera, Jasmine Harvey, Danielle Gilbert, Sovit Adhikari, Paul Jones, and Romeo went to the Casa Loma landmark and museum. Megan, and Linda Brown, Johnny McGee, Tiyana Butler and I went back to the hostel. Casa Loma is beautiful. It looks partly like an old castle. My favorite part is the top tower. I was there on another trip.

Around 5 p.m., the group went back to the hostel. An hour late, Romeo, Belinda, Paul and I went to a nearby supermarket to shop for dinner. We came back around 6:45 and started to cook. We had chicken, rice, soup beans, green beans and boiled potatoes.

Sovit Adhikari, Jasmine Harvey, Tiyana Butler, Linda Brown, Paul Jones and Danielle Gilbert make supper at the hostel.

During dinner, we talked about who our favorite actor and our favorite singer is, and discussed what we liked about Central Penn College. Right after dinner, Belinda, Danielle, Johnny, Jasmine, Linda and Tiyana decided to go to the Ripley Aquarium. The aquarium closed at 11 p.m., so they wanted to get going.

When they were finished touring the aquarium, the students were waiting to get picked up around 11 p.m. Meanwhile, I stayed at the hostel to get some rest. All of a sudden, my phone vibrated. It was a text from Central Penn student Mbuyi “Steve-O” Osango, who had already been in Toronto. Steve-O came to visit, and spent two and a half hours at the hostel. During his visit, around 11:15, Tiyana called Steve-O so she could talk to me, because she couldn’t reach me – my phone was out of data.

“Is Romeo on his way?” she asked me.

“I guess so,” I said.

Because I wasn’t sure if Romeo was on his way to pick the group up at the aquarium, and my phone was no use, I went to the guys’ room, where Romeo was staying for the trip, to confirm that he was on his way to pick the students up.

“Yes,” they said.

Another phone call came in around 11:25. Romeo still wasn’t there, and it was cold. That’s when Megan decided to pick the group up.

Some people, including me, didn’t have data, so we were depending on the Wi-Fi.

As Megan went to pick them up, I kept in touch with everyone in the group chat and Steve-O decided to get some food at Subway. Fifteen minutes later, Romeo came in with Steve-O, whom he met outside the hostel, where he had been waiting for the call to pick the group up.

It turned out there were some miscommunication and technology issues. Eventually, though, we all settled down, and things were cleared up.
