Army veteran Daniel Sparks

From well pad to Washington

Army veteran Daniel Sparks was living the good life during the nation’s oil and gas boom but found himself laid off last November, with no prospects for work. The father of three felt that his leadership experience from the military would appeal to some employers, but he knew that his job prospects were diminished without a college degree. Less than a year later, Sparks has blossomed into a full-fledged college student who is active at Penn State's Fayette campus, in particular with the Student Veterans Association.

If you happened to see students planting trees on campus last week, they were brought there by Meredith, their instructor, an associate professor of engineering.
