Dakotah J. Hewston, a building automation technology student from Dingmans Ferry – among the Phi Mu Delta members literally "on hand" – intently works with Melissa R. Furber-Tennyson, of Hawley. Good sport John A. Gondy, of Glenmoore, a member of the college's Omega Delta Sigma's veterans' fraternity, shows he's a pretty fine manicurist, too. The architectural technology major playfully flashes his handiwork, delighting Regina M. Peluzzo, a civil engineering technology student from Philadelphia.Employing a deliberate and delicate touch is Phi Mu Delta's Marquise J. Frederick, an electrical technology student from Philadelphia.Artistry and altruism meet at the MAN-i-Cures table.Timothy J. Schafer Jr., a Phi Mu Delta brother from Lancaster, is a portrait of diligence. He is enrolled in automotive technology management: automotive technology concentration.For the third year, Penn College's fraternity brothers helped a variety of nonprofit causes in their "MAN-i-Cures" fundraiser this past week. The students painted nails for a donation of $5 or more, raising nearly $500 for causes that corresponded to the chosen color: yellow for suicide prevention ($146), pink for breast cancer awareness ($79.50), lavender for testicular cancer awareness ($73), teal for sexual assault awareness ($69.50), blue for autism awareness ($65) and purple for domestic violence ($64.16).
