Horticulture Faculty/Staff Again Judge Statewide FFA Events
As they have for the past four years, horticulture faculty and staff from Penn College’s School of Natural Resources Management served as judges for state FFA Activities Week. This year’s gathering, held June 11-13 at The Pennsylvania State University’s main campus, attracted nearly 1,400 high school students and chaperones from throughout the state for agriculture-related contests, performances and other activities. Carl J. Bower Jr., instructor, and Dennis P. Skinner, assistant professor, judged the Public Speaking-Conservation category of Career Development Events, while laboratory assistant Justin Shelinski judged Floriculture entries. Bower also judged the Nursery & Landscape CDE, for which he serves as co-chair.
