SUMMERDALE, PA (12/06/2012)(readMedia)-- Amanda Kloehr, of Enola, Pa., has been named the Central Penn College student of the month for November. Kicking off her Central Penn College experience in the summer term of 2011, Kloehr is on the road to earning her corporate communications bachelor's degree in the spring term of 2014.
During her time at Central Penn, Kloehr has developed quite a resume and has reached for numerous opportunities and goals. Since a life-changing car accident, she has been adamant about stopping others from making the same mistake that she made of driving distracted. She has received much publicity for her story of turning tragedy into success and continues to spread the word about the dangers of distracted driving. Kloehr has also served her country in the United States Army.
Kloehr's ultimate goal is to support herself and her professional speaking career. With her belief that it's all about the differences one makes, she intends to utilize every bit of training she received; not only from Central Penn, but her military background as well.
"Quitting was never an option," says Kloehr. "There is always someone yelling over my shoulder telling me to keep going. Don't give up. Keep going. Don't give up! I have no choice but to listen."
