Student of the Month: Katie Andrews #psuaged16 #studentsuccess
Every month we like to highlight students that have gone above and beyond in the Agriculture Education department! For the month of November, that student is our sporty cohort member Katie Andrews.
Katie is a senior this year and is minoring in International Agriculture and Agriculture Business Management. Katie has had an interesting story regarding her time at here at PSU! Not only was she a sports hero and played for Penn State Women’s Field Hockey, she used continued towards her goal of getting her Agricultural Extension and Education degree. She states, “Penn State has instilled in me pride, tradition, honor, and excellence that I will continue to incorporate into my future career. These four characteristics were role-modeled and lived out by the professors, coaches, peers, and administration I worked with daily. As an agricultural educator, I want to be a role model for students and establish an agriculture program that is swarming with students carrying pride, tradition, honor, and excellence. Pursuing a degree in Agriculture Education was my goal since day 1 of freshmen year. Preparing agriculturally aware and competent students with 21st skills to be successful in anything they decide to do is my passion. Penn State has provided me with endless opportunities to maximize my skills and knowledge and I am excited to provide the same opportunities for students.”
On top of all of that, Katie is the Collegiate FFA Secretary, Teach Ag! Society Treasurer, Teach Ag! Avenger, a member of Coaly Society, involved with the Athletic Director’s Leadership Institute, and lastly is a Spirituous Lioneous.
Katie is a great student and has done a lot for the Agriculture College! Congratulations Katie for being November’s Student of the Month!
