A Pennsylvania College of Technology student who serves as a resident assistant in on-campus housing has been chosen to receive an "Our Region's Best" award from the Mid-Atlantic Association of College and University Housing Officers.

Brian J. Fish, of Hawley, a senior in the Construction Management bachelor-degree major, will receive the award in special ceremonies this November during MACUHO's 2001 Annual Conference at Cherry Hill, N.J.

The award is presented to only four resident-assistant staff members in the association's entire region, which includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

To receive the award, a student must exhibit a healthy and balanced lifestyle, excel academically, serve as a good role model and effective team player and show evidence of ethical decision-making.

While at Penn College, Fish has served as president of the Construction Management Club and The National Residence Hall Honorary and as treasurer of Sigma Lambda Chi, the honor society for construction students. In the fall, Fish will begin his third year as a resident assistant at the Village at Penn College.

Fish has been named to the dean's list every semester since 1998 and has received the Student Leader of the Year Award, the highest honor presented by the Student Government Association at Penn College.

Founded in 1972, MACUHO is dedicated to promoting high professional standards among those involved in the management of residence hall services and programs.
