Student of the Month: Rose Cowan #psuaged18 #studentsuccess

Every month we like to highlight students that have gone above and beyond in the Agriculture Education department! February we are proud to share some stories and accomplishments of Ms. Rosalind Cowan!

Why Agricultural & Extension Education for Rose?  Well, because it is  "A Perfect Combination." Rose is a sophomore at Penn State.  Her plan was to become an animal science major when she arrived at PSU, but it's didn't take her long to realize it wasn't for her.  "In high school, I had three teachers who were extraordinary and really influenced my life.  I remembered how much I learned from them and realized that I want more students to be able to have teachers like that.  It was then that I discovered the AEE major." The combination of agriculture and teaching is exactly what Rose was looking for.  She does not take a moment in AEE for granted, and will definitely pass that onto her students an agricultural science teacher some day!  

Rose is a familiar face in our major, always willing to offer a helping hand.  She has been an active member of Teach Ag! Society, serving as this year the Vice President of Program Development.  Rose is the chair of the Essay contest committee, where she is able to challenge other students to pursue the "perfect combination" of a major that she chose!  She is a participant on Penn State Equine Research Team or PSERT.  PSERT is dedicated to giving undergraduates an opportunity to do equine research, and provides a space for equine science discussions.  Outside the College of Agriculture, Rose is involved with CRU a Christian ministry on campus.
