The Magnificent SEVEN: #psuaged17 still learning post student teaching experience

Searching the dictionary for the definition of lifelong learning, one would read:
"The provision or use of both formal and informal learning opportunities throughout people's lives in order to foster the continuous development and improvement of the knowledge and skills needed for employment and personal fulfillment."

The Magnificent Seven, #psuaged17 are exemplifying this practice.  While they have emerged from their Student Teaching Internship, and are only a few days away from being official Penn State University graduates, they continue to seek out learning opportunities.

On Wednesday, April 26, 2017 #psuaged17 joined the Berlin Brothersvalley Young Farmer Chapter to learn about adult agriculture education programs and the procedures to start a young farmer chapter within a school district.  The Berlin Young Farmers Chapter is currently the largest chapter in the Pennsylvania Young Farmers Association (PYFA) with 129 members.  Berlin membership includes forty-two couples and thirty-seven lifetime members of the PYFA.

also had the unique opportunity to meet with Berlin firefighters to learn about grain bin
entrapment, and utilizing a farm grain tube should an individual be trapped.  Seth Forry, Berlin paramedic lead the presentation.  All film and pictures used during the presentation were from the Keith Leydig Farm.  Mr. Leydig is the first assistant in the Berlin Volunteer Fire Department.

The Magnificent Seven had a informative evening learning and engaging with the Berlin Young Farmers Chapter.  Thank you to Doyle Paul, and the Berlin Young Farmers Chapter for the warm welcome and hospitality!

Stay tuned to hear more about #psuaged17's exciting adventures through their Post-Internship experience.
