A pair of PCA&D students have been selected for an international photographers' conference program in January.

Kennedy Bryant Toomey (‘22 Photography & Video) and Nicole Stoltzfus (‘22 Photography & Video) have been accepted into the volunteer program at the Professional Photographers of America's 2020 Imaging USA Conference in Nashville.

Todd Snovel last week was honored as the Business Diversity Champion at the Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC's 2019 Catalyst Awards.
