A team of six Construction Management students from Pennsylvania College of Technology placed fourth recently in the Associated Schools of Construction-Associated General Contractors of America National Student Competition in Dallas.

The team earned the right to compete in Dallas by taking first place in the "Design/Build" category in the annual Associated Schools of Construction Region One (Virginia to Maine) Construction Management Competition, which was held in New Jersey last fall.

In Dallas, the Penn College team competed against teams from Brigham Young University, the University of Florida, Iowa State University, Milwaukee School of Engineering, the University of Oklahoma and the University of Washington. The teams were judged on presentation skills, creativity, understanding of sound construction techniques and thoughtful methodology.

Penn College's Design/Build team consisted of Jamie L. Bierly, Millheim; Spencer L. Boone, Bellefonte; David A. Frace, Wapwallopen; Kevin L. Imes, New Holland; Jarrod B. Krahe, Erie; and Michael A. Snyder, Bloomsburg.

Serving as coach for the team was Raymond H. Robbins, assistant professor of building construction management in the School of Construction and Design Technologies at Penn College.
