Two members of Penn College’s horticulture faculty honored tradition at this month’s 85th Pennsylvania FFA Convention/Activities Week, again serving as contest judges during events at Penn State’s main campus. Dennis P. Skinner, assistant professor, and instructor Carl J. Bower Jr. judged the Public Speaking-Conversation competition on June 10 and, the following day, Bower (who serves as co-chair for the category) judged the Nursery & Landscape Career Development Event. The annual get-together draws 1,400 high school students and chaperones from across Pennsylvania for agriculture-related contests, leadership and career opportunities, performances, social interaction and other activities.
