Executive Board

Dylan Stecklair-President (dts5200@psu.edu)

I am a member of the Penn State Schreyer Honors College Class of 2019 from West Chester PA, and I am pursuing a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Engineering Entrepreneurship. I try to get involved in as much as possible on campus, and one of my biggest commitments is being a Penn State Lion Ambassador. This involves giving tours and working with the Alumni Association to put on projects throughout the year. I am also an undergraduate research assistant for Dr. Stephanie Stockar, where I assist in the calibration of control-oriented systems for the ARPA-E Nextcar project. This past summer I was a process engineer for First Quality Retail Services in Lewistown, PA. There I spent most of my time working on the optimization of their production lines, in terms of both time and expenditure efficiency. Outside of my academic and professional commitments, I am an avid skier, and I love listening to classic rock music. I began my involvement with EON as a mentee coming into my Freshmen year, and went on to become a mentor my Sophomore year, a head mentor my Junior year, and now I am finally serving as the president of EON. I hope to leave a lasting impact on EON, and truly assist in both the transition and professional development of the incoming Freshmen class.


Matt Parry-Vice President (mbp5263@psu.edu)

I am a junior in the Schreyer Honors College where I am pursuing both a B.S. in biomedical engineering and a M.S. in neuroscience with intentions of attending medical school upon graduation. I was a mentee, mentor, head mentor, and I now have the opportunity to serve as the vice president of EON. I am also an undergraduate researcher in the Neuroscience department, the community service chair of the club croquet team, the outreach chair of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), the fundraising chair of the Club golf team, and the secretary of the Engineering undergraduate Council (EUC). I hope to, along with the other directors, encourage and introduce the hundreds of students entering the college of engineering here at Penn State to the myriad of engineering opportunities across campus, not only on orientation day, but also on a personal level wherever possible. Please feel free to contact me, or any of the other directors—we are here to help!


Joshua Rosato-Secretary (jpr5469@psu.edu) 

I am a junior from Pittsburgh, PA and I am studying mechanical engineering. As a freshmen, I partook in EON and enjoyed my experience so much I decided to continue with the program.I was a mentee, mentor, head mentor, and now I have the opportunity to be secretary for EON. I really enjoy mentoring and helping engineering students at Penn State. In the summer of 2017, I had the privilege to intern with PPG Paints in Carrollton, Texas. In the summer of 2018, I will be interning with The Kellogg’s Company in Muncy, PA. Outside of EON, I work as a research assistant in the Smeal College of Business. Also, I am involved in the Engineering Undergraduate Council, Club Water Polo Team, and ASME. I hope to make school easier and more enjoyable for young engineering students.


Sarah Steele-Professional Development Director (sbs5502@psu.edu)

Ryan Shupp-Public Relations Director (rvs5549@psu.edu)

I am a Mechanical Engineering major in the Schreyer Honors College from Cranford, NJ, with a minor in Economics.  I started with EON as a mentee my freshmen year and have been involved with it ever since.  Outside of EON, I am a member of the Penn State Lion Ambassadors, the Men’s Club Lacrosse team.  I also conduct Undergraduate Research for the Reacting Flow Dynamics Lab here on campus where I study flame interaction.  I will spend the summer of 2017 interning at the Naval Nuclear Lab in Schenectady, NY.  I first became an EON mentor because I wanted to give back to the next class of PSU Engineers in the same way my mentor helped me my freshmen year, and have subsequently been lucky enough to serve as a head mentor and now a director.  In my free time I enjoy playing pick-up sports and watching football and ice hockey.
