Several Greencastle students were part of the sixth annual Penn State Mont Alto Academic Festival this week, showcasing local students from greater Chambersburg, Waynesboro, Gettysburg and other neighboring communities.

Deanna Burke, Cameron Dayley and Jennifer Sandusky, all from Greencastle, participated.

Sponsored by F&M Trust Company, the event displays academic highlights that have been researched, developed and created by Penn State Mont Alto throughout the 2010-11 academic year.

“This is a great opportunity for students to present the results of their work on undergraduate projects to fellow students and faculty, as well as the local community,” said Academic Festival committee chair Robin Yaure.

Individual and group projects featured covered a wide range of topics including English, Engineering, Forestry, Human Development and Family Studies, Nursing, Psychology and Technology. In addition to the academic presentations, a student art show was held in the Museum of Temporary Art.

The festival is free and open to the public.
