Tiana M. Rawls-White, a culinary arts technology major from Northumberland, captured the 2019 “Penn College Star” title with a prize-winning vocal performance among seven accomplished challengers. Singer Amber L. Way, of Port Matilda, enrolled in applied health studies: occupational therapy assistant concentration, placed second; and mechatronics engineering technology student Kyle B. Linscott, a Williamsporter who sang and played guitar to original music, was the third-place finisher. Jarred J. Jones, whose talent was BMX tricks, was chosen as "Fan Favorite." Four other musicians performed: singers Skyla E. Feerrar, Danielle M. Fidler and Kai K. Marshall, and Perry R. Leslie Wheat, who played original music on bass guitar. Students Cole A. Gehman and Trevor J. Route shared master-of-ceremonies duties at the sixth annual talent show, held this past week in the Klump Academic Center Auditorium under the sponsorship of the Wildcat Events Board.
