End of the Year Banquet: That's a Wrap! #studentsuccess
As our year
comes to a close, there is always that “bittersweet” feeling in the air that
never seems to go away no matter how many years pass by. Not only is it a time
to remember the years accomplishments and say good-bye to our 2015 student
teachers (soon to be alumni!), but it is time for a new beginning as the 2016
student teachers rise to become seniors. Last night, Teach Ag! Society,
Collegiate FFA, and Collegiate 4-H, all came together to recognize club accomplishments
and say good-bye to their graduating members in their clubs.
As the night
started, we were fortunate enough to have several guests and attendants come
celebrate our Penn State student success. In the crowd, was our keynote speaker
Mr. Bill Fleet. Bill has had several accomplishments in and out of the
agriculture industry and is even a Penn State Alumni! His speech was based on
how teachers make an impact everyday on our student’s lives. After his speech
concluded, every single person in that room, teacher or not, was effected by
his kind words.
keynote, there were awards that were presented to special people that were
nominated by Teach Ag! Society of having accomplishments in the agriculture
education career, in the agriculture industry, and being an outstanding member in
