STATE COLLEGE — South Hills School of Business & Technology recently hosted a visit from eleven members of the Penn State Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program. The group of mid-level professionals from around the world is currently participating in a 10-month non-degree program at Penn State University which offers opportunities with other institutes of learning, such as South Hills, to engage in leadership and professional development. The Humphrey Fellowship Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and encourages sharing between different cultures and educational systems. The Humphrey Fellows will return later in the school year to offer presentations about their home countries to the students at South Hills.
