32 students were honored in all

On Wednesday, May 9, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Lodge Number 1533, in partnership with Schuylkill Technology Center, honored 32 students at the Annual Students of the Year Awards Banquet. The ceremony took place at the Elks Lodge Number 1553 in Frackville, highlighting the achievements of selected students from both STC North and South campuses.

This year’s celebration identified four students as Students of the Year. From the STC South Campus, seniors Jeffrey Petzold and Brendan Melochick were recognized for their excellence.

Petzold, from Tri-Valley Area School District, is studying Culinary Arts.

He plans to enter the workforce immediately after graduation.

Melochick is enrolled in the Welding program. He is preparing for a future in Welding and Metals Fabrication at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, motivated by his involvement in technical and honor societies at STC.
