About David Cunningham

David Cunningham was the Coordinator of Tutoring at Penn College until his untimely death in the summer of 2001. He was well known and greatly appreciated throughout campus, demonstrating not only professional expertise, but a sincerely caring attitude as well. From providing the College with a team of top tutors to providing his employees with generous considerations, David kept an organized, productive, and cheerful office. As is true of all the best professionals, he loved his job; especially when students were learning and succeeding.

Before running the Tutoring Center, David took on tutoring himself. He began helping students with math problems in May of 1982, when the institution was still the Williamsport Area Community College. As one can imagine, explaining difficult math procedures can be tedious and frustrating. But not for David. He patiently helped students as much as they needed, making sure they understood the material. He never gave up on them. Throughout his years here, he went on to hold various other positions, including math lab assistant, college activities assistant, and microcomputer lab assistant. On the side, David enjoyed the musical theatre, and performed in shows such as "Lil' Abner".

David was also an alumnus. He received his Associates' degree from Williamsport Area Community College in May 1981. He went on to Penn State, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in May 1983.

David's family has had a long association with the college. His mother, Jean Cunningham, taught in nursing before her retirement. His brother Jim is the Chief Technology Officer for the College, and his brother Mike is the Chief Information Officer. His family, friends, and coworkers remember him fondly.
