SUMMERDALE, PA (09/13/2012)(readMedia)-- Debra Driscoll, of Harrisburg, has been selected as the Central Penn College September Student of the Month. Beginning her college career at Central Penn during the winter 2012 term, Driscoll is slated to graduate with her bachelor's degree in accounting during the summer of 2014.
