Earth Science Center Faculty/Staff Serve as State FFA Judges


Faculty and staff members in Pennsylvania College of Technology’s School of Natural Resources Management served as judges for several competitions during the 2012 State FFA Activities Week, held June 12-14 at The Pennsylvania State University.

FFA Activities Week gathers more than 1,400 high school students from throughout the state for three days of competitions and agriculture-related activities.

Horticulture faculty members Carl J. Bower Jr. and Dennis P. Skinner judged the Public Speaking-Conservation category, while Horticulture Lab Assistant Justin Shelinski judged Floriculture entries. Bower also served as co-chair of the  2012 planning committee for the Nursery and Landscape state competitions.

“FFA is such a great grass-roots organization that emphasizes both technical and ‘soft’ skills,” said Mary A. Sullivan, dean of natural resources management. “Our faculty and staff were excited about being part of this process and look forward to continuing their involvement in the future.”
