The seven 2017 Penn State Student Teachers are attending convention with their cooperating centers; allowing them to gain a valuable experience by planning and traveling to an event with students.Three students are serving as student volunteers in the educational resource booths for National FFA. One student is serving as an intern in the National FFA communications department. The remaining 14 students are serving as public speaking judges, assisting with the parliamentary procedure CDE, and working the State FFA photo booth. In addition, many of the 25 members are also competing in the National ATA Conclave, in events such as: Parli Pro, Quiz Bowl, Debate Team, Essay Contest, and Nolan Award/Program of Excellence.
Also, our very own Penn State Teach Ag! Society member--Katie McLaughlin, is competing to serve as a National FFA Officer! She is representing the state of Pennsylvania as the National FFA Officer candidate. She is surly making Pennsylvania FFA proud because she made it to the final rounds of the National Officer interviews! We wish her the best of luck as she continues on.
