The room was filled with nervous tension on Wednesday, March 26, 2014, as students in Johnson College’s Architectural Drafting and Design Technology (ADT) Program watched as their work was judged in the College’s 10th Annual Portfolio Competition.
Each year, senior ADT students prepare portfolios of hand-drafted, Computer Aided Design (CAD), and Revit work samples.
Senior Lisa Toole said, “Everyone is so nervous, you can feel it in the room. We can’t wait to see not just our results, but we are nervous for each other.”
Industry professionals from various companies are invited to evaluate the students’ portfolios as judges.
The 2014 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners include:
- Patrick McCaffery, Simpson
- Ethan Davis, Factoryville
- Lisa Toole, Scranton
- Katelyn Pierce, White Haven
- Julio Cooley, Darby
- Robert Jones, Scranton
Plus there an honorable mention for Freshman Anthony Tallarico of Throop.
This year’s judges included a few previous alumni of Johnson College’s ADT program including alumni Matt Rozelle ‘98, Project Manager-Signature Building Systems in Moosic; Brian Causer ‘08, Senior Design Tech at Picatinny in Arsennal, N.J.; Don Baron ‘92, Architectural Designer at Willow Design in Scranton; and Valerie Widaman ’06 from KBA Associates in Jermyn. Bill Jones, Registered Architect at The Palumbo Group in Scranton and Frank Summa, Civil Designer for GPI Inc. in Moosic were also judges.
