Central Columbia Senior, Agricultural/Environmental Science Student and FFA Chapter President, Abby Yoder, was selected and attended The School for Excellency in the Agricultural Sciences at Penn State University from July 8 to August 4. During this excellent learning opportunity, Abby was involved with many courses in regards to environmental science, plant science, animal science and agricultural awareness. Abby constructed a presentation on world hunger/food availability in which she presented to fellow classmates and a panel of judges to compete in the world food prize conference. Due to her efforts, Abby was chosen to speak at graduation as well as earn a position as a presenter at the World Food International Conference in Iowa representing Central Columbia and Pennsylvania. Congratulations for your outstanding efforts.
