BET student earns TechNation scholarship award

Zachery Craven, a second-year student in the Biomedical Engineering Technology program at Penn State New Kensington, is the 2013 recipient of the TechNation scholarship.

The $500 award was based on essays written by BET students. The Ford City residents' winning essay will be published in an upcoming issue of TechNation magazine by MD Publishing. Based in Peachtree City, Ga., the publishing company is an online source for dealers and manufacturers of medical and surgical equipment.

The scholarship was established by BET program coordinator Myron Hartman, who is on the editorial board for two of MD Publishing's magazines, Medical Dealer and TechNation. In addition, Hartman writes three articles a year for TechNation. His yearly stipend for the articles and funding from John Kreig, publisher of MD Publishing, support the awards.
