On this episode of the Knightly News Podcast, we welcome Director of College Relations Curtis Voelker to discuss the conclusion of Central Penn’s “Raise the Roof” campaign and Vice President Jamie Harmon to give the Fall 2021 Knightly News Brief.

During our time with Voelker, we are joined by Knightly News Reporter Sarah Whitmire. During the show, the group discusses the importance of volunteering in our communities and shares the joy that comes along with volunteer efforts.

Also in our discussion, Voelker discusses the “Raise the Roof” campaign, an annual philanthropic initiative at Central Penn College, this year focusing on housing insecurity. This campaign benefits seven local organizations in the seven counties that the college mainly serves.
