Penn State Altoona's Office of Institutional Equity, Diversity, and International Student Services will present a "Finding Your Path" event on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 from 12 noon - 1 p.m. in the Titelman Study of the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts. The event will feature Penn State Altoona Webmaster Jonathan O'Harrow.
A graduate of Susquehanna University with a B.A. in Computer Science, O'Harrow has worked for more than 15 years as a Web and graphics designer and systems programmer. In addition to his work at Penn State Altoona, he has acted as a Web design consultant to numerous non-profit organizations in Blair County. O'Harrow has served as staff advisor to the Penn State Altoona Gay Straight Alliance for nearly ten years and has served on the University's Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Equity. He is active in numerous community arts organizations and currently serves on the board of directors for the Blair Concert Chorale, the Blair County Arts Foundation, and United Way of Blair County.
Finding Your Path is a speaker series that emphasizes the informal reflections of faculty and staff members on their personal journeys and intellectual passions. The goal of this program is to give students, especially students from underrepresented groups, role models to open their view of the diverse world and motivate their college career.
