@TeachAgPSU Welcomes the Curry Family!

Penn State Teach Ag is excited to welcome Dr. Kevin Curry (@kevinwcurry), and his wife Melissa (@Melissa_Curry4) to the Penn State Agricultural Education family.  Dr, Curry has been hired to serve as an Assistant Professor of Agricultural Education!

Dr. Curry received his first introduction to agriculture in ninth grade in an Agriscience course.  he credits his amazing agriculture teacher for sparking his interest in agriculture.  Asked to be a part of the livestock judging team, and show club lambs, Dr. Curry quickly fell in love with agriculture.  A knack for competition led him to devote time and energy to livestock and poultry judging, skillathon, and meats judging.  All while showing club lambs and steers.  It comes as no surprise that he met his wife Melissa while showing lambs in high school.

Kevin and Melissa are both proud alumni of North Carolina State University.  Melissa has taught middle school language arts/social studies for nine years.  The Curry's are avid hikers and enjoy being outdoors.  Penn State and State College will definitely satisfy their love for hiking and the outdoors!

To learn more about Kevin and his road to Penn State, take a look at his Curriculum Vitae:
