Four engineers named part of 2011 homecoming court

Four Penn State engineers will be part of the 2011 Penn State homecoming court, including two students and two faculty members.

The members of the court were announced Thursday through the event's Twitter feed.

Electrical engineering student Athena Abate and civil engineering student Will Sheehan are among the ten students on homecoming court.

Enrique Gomez, assistant professor of chemical engineering, and Paul Lynch, an instructor in industrial and manufacturing engineering, are among the eight people on the faculty court.

Homecoming is set for Oct. 14-15. This year's theme is "Forever Lions Endless Pride."

Last year's homecoming court included three Penn State engineers. Mechanical engineering student Justin Ross and bioengineering student Danielle DaSilva were elected to the student court and Cheryl Knobloch, coordinator of the Women in Engineering Program, was on the faculty court.

Ross and DaSilva were elected 2010 homecoming king and queen, respectively.
