Katy DeMedal, director of the Career Center at Westminster College, was recently elected Member at Large and Co-Chair of the Educator Excellence Award Committee to the Pittsburgh Education Recruiting Consortium (PERC).

PERC is a non-profit organization with a consortium of 29 colleges and universities in Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and Northern West Virginia.The primary purpose of PERC is to sponsor an annual education job fair to provide their graduates with career opportunities.

According to DeMedal, Westminster College has been a member of PERC since the beginning of the organization.

“My [new] role supports PERC’s mission and helps ensure that the organization continues to thrive and offer teaching opportunities from around the country to our students,” said DeMedal.

Annually, Westminster students and other members of the consortium attend the PERC education job fair, a well-respected regional and national recruitment event. Representatives include 200+ employers of certified teachers from across the United States–including Pennsylvania. Participating employers interview and hire teacher candidates in all Pre K-12 disciplines as well as related certification areas such as counseling, therapies and administration.
