Central Pennsylvania Future City Competition
Gannett Fleming served as a corporate sponsor of the first annual Central Pennsylvania Future City Competition, held on Jan. 13 in the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building. This educational program for seventh- and eighth-grade students combines a stimulating engineering challenge with a "hands-on" application to present their vision of a city in the future.
The team from Allen Middle School in Camp Hill, Pa., was awarded first place for its superb design and impressive model, which included a functioning Ferris wheel. In addition to a charitable donation, the firm donated several gifts for the more than 80 people who attended the event.
Several Gannett Fleming employees contributed to the success of the event, including Brehan McBride, co-coordinator of the Central Pa. Future City Competition; Rachel Govelovich, fundraising coordinator; William Allis, volunteer judge; and Mary Hoff, charitable donations and advertisements.
