Alumna visit brightens my day!

Posted: March 22, 2012

I was delighted to hear a familiar voice outside my office yesterday afternoon, Sarah Peterson '11 IID, surprised me with a wonderful visit. Sarah was the recipient of the Ag Alumni Society Outstanding Senior Award and an intern in the Alumni Relations office her senior year. Currently, Sarah is a high school Math teacher with Teach for America in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Her school is on spring break and she is home visiting her family in Robesonia, PA and friends at Penn State.

Sarah loves teaching and has future plans of getting a dual Masters in Biology and Health Education. We talked alot about her family, she was proud to tell me her younger brother, David, will be attending the Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences in the Fall. He will be joining Sarah and her older sister, Hilary Peterson '09 Food Science, as proud Penn Staters. Hilary is enjoying her role as Associate Research Scientist with The Hershey Company.

Thank you, Sarah, for a wonderful surprise visit!
