A graduation ceremony was held Friday evening for Pennsylvania College of Technology's Leadership Boot Camp, intended to provide students with a set of essential skills that will enable them to step into leadership positions on campus and in their professions.

More than 60 students participated in this year's program, which is facilitated by Bradley M. Webb, director of student affairs administration. During six weeks of sessions, the students gained more of the skills sought by employers by engaging in experiences that promote an understanding of self, the value of teamwork and the responsibility of serving as productive leaders in society.

Webb was joined by Elliott Strickland, chief student affairs officer, in presenting certificates to the students; a social hour followed in the Thompson Professional Development Center.
