​Matt Beck, Assistant Plans Engineer with District 3, earned a spot on the Alumni Wall of Distinction at his former high school this past October. Matt, a 2000 graduate of Shikellamy High School, was inducted into the Wall of Distinction on October 28, for his outstanding work on the Central Susquehanna Valley Transportation Project (CSVT).  

He joins the ranks with others such as State Senator Lynda Culver Schlegel, Jonathan Weis, CEO of Weis Markets, and Andrew Oakes, owner of Fresh Roasted Coffee, LLC, each of whom have made an impact in the Susquehanna Valley and the Shikellamy School District community.  

Matt, who has a strong foundation of community service, believed working at PennDOT would further his dedication to the community. He began his career with PennDOT in 2004, following in the footsteps of his father Larry Beck, who worked for District 3 for more than 35 years and served as Assistant District Executive for Design before his retirement in 2003.  

A dedicated public servant since he was an adolescent with the Boy Scouts, Matt earned the rank of Eagle Scout at the age of 16. He has continued his efforts to make an impact in his community by volunteering with Boy Scout Troop 331 in Sunbury and at Camp Karoondinha near Millmont, as well as focusing on working in the public sector to make an impact within his community and the surrounding area.  

Since he began his career at PennDOT, Matt has advanced within the District 3 Design Unit to his current position leading the design for CSVT. This project, which has been in the works for nearly 60 years, is anticipated to make a significant safety improvement and economic impact to the local region when it is completed.  

Congratulations Matt Beck on your outstanding success and thank you for your hard work on such a massive project.
