The Passing of Dr. Laura Hummell

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Dr. Laura Hummell, PA Department of Education Technology & Engineering Education Specialist. Dr. Hummell passed away at Hershey Medical Center this morning from injuries received in a hit and run accident in Harrisburg on Monday, November 26, 2018. Her children and husband were at her side. Here is a statement from her family:


With great sadness I have the latest update. After days of test Laura’s brain scans have come back the same. They show no brain activity. Her body is living on with a little help. Our children and I have decided to fulfill her final wishes through the gift of life. Laura has always been a giving selfless person she has always been a supporter of the organ donation program. The hospital and I are going through the process of helping Laura help the last few people she can. I feel blessed to have been a part of this wonderful woman's life for the last twenty eight years. I wish I could deliver this news in person to each and every one of the people she has touched in some way. Her smile zest for life and learning will live on in our hearts. I want to thank all of you for the kind words, support and prayers.


 -Jeffrey A. Hummell, Sr.


Always the educator, Dr. Hummell touched many lives with her associations in TSA, TEEAP, and ITEEA and she will be missed. We offer our condolences to her family and friends and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Dr. Hummell was an incredible advocate for the profession. When we know details of final arrangements for Dr. Hummell, we will relay them to our membership.

New Scholarship Opportunity 

There is a new scholarship benefiting TEEAP students who attend California University of Pennsylvania. Dave Rohm, a 1978 California State University Industrial Arts graduate, worked servicing the technical training community in educational equipment sales for 33 years. His market ranged from middle schools through the military but always had a special love for his field, Tech Ed. Dave retired as the President of Educational Solutions in 2014 and recently started a CalU scholarship. The endowed gift was to the University and the scholarship will be awarded by faculty at the University in consultation with TEEAP. The award will be approximately $1,250 a year to a student going into Technology Education preferably, or any of CalU’s Applied Engineering and Technology fields. The requirements for the students applying will follow guidelines established by CalU faculty and will be similar to other TEEAP scholarships. Please contact CalU at 724-938-4415 to apply today.
