Dontae Lilly is a successful graduate of Pennsylvania Highlands Community College. He earned his associate degree in Business Management in 2009, and then moved on to complete his bachelor’s degree at Saint Francis University.

Prior to attending Pennsylvania Highlands, Dontae had a career in the military. After the military, Dontae and his family moved back to Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Upon his family’s return to the area, he started visiting local colleges and universities to see what they had to offer, and ended up choosing Pennsylvania Highlands Community College.

“I looked at many colleges in the region, but the comfort I felt while dealing with the staff at Penn Highlands helped make my decision an easy one. They were willing to help translate my military and real-life experience into college credits. As an adult student, Penn Highlands served as a springboard for my post-military career.”

While attending, Dontae excelled and became President of the Student Government. His leadership shined both in and out of the classroom. Dontae ultimately attributes Pennsylvania Highlands for helping him with his transition from the military into his now successful post-military career.
