During our time with Bixler, we look back at the Knightly News Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and her winning the “Shining Star” award as part of the festivities.

As we moved on in the discussion, we took a look back at “The Hand That Holds the Quill,” discussing the special opportunity for the actors to perform the play at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

The podcast also features Knightly News Reporter Sarah Whitmire, adding her perspective about the FYE’s “Claiming the Castle” initiative with our residential students.

On the second segment of the podcast, we welcome Knightly News President Jenelle Dulack to chat with Dr. Cassandra Hillegass about the Central Penn College Business Club.

During this segment, Dr. Hillegass discusses being a Central Penn alumnus and how she became a full-time professor at the college.

Hillegass discussed how the COVID-19 pandemic played a role in the formation of the CPCBC and the impact that the club has had on the campus in a short time.
