May 4, 2012
About 65 students in Penn College’s heavy construction equipment and diesel technology majors were treated to a recent demonstration of Volvo pipe-laying equipment at the Wayne Township Landfill in McElhattan. The event, the latest in Volvo’s ongoing partnership with the college, was a collaboration among Henry J. Sorgen IV, of Highway Equipment & Supply Co.; landfill officials Jay B. Alexander and Max T. Persun; and Volvo Construction Equipment, North America, a steadfast instructional presence in the School of Natural Resources Management. “This was a great opportunity for us to see some of the latest technology and advancements Volvo CE is using,” said Chris S. Weaver, instructor of diesel equipment technology at the college’s Schneebeli Earth Science Center.
