Victoria Herr, of Lancaster, Pa., was named the recipient of the 2019 Outstanding Senior Award. The Outstanding Senior Award, sponsored by the College of Agricultural Sciences Alumni Society and the Coaly Society, honors the senior who best balances outstanding academics, extracurricular activities, work experience, and communication skills. Candidates are selected based on résumés, grades, interviews, and a short essay.

Herr graduated last May with a degree in agricultural and extension education and a minor in international agriculture. During her undergraduate career, she maintained exceptional academic success and excelled in hands-on learning through internships and study-abroad experiences.

She was a Global Teach Ag! intern at Penn State, served as a conservation education intern at the Lehigh Valley Zoo, and worked with students at Penns Manor Area High School as a student teacher and FFA adviser. She also traveled to Costa Rica as an FFA chaperone and studied agriculture in Mexico and Belize through embedded courses.

Herr has been awarded numerous honors during her time at Penn State, including three College of Agricultural Sciences scholarships, an Ag Alumni Society award, the Pennsylvania Association of Agricultural Educators Student Teacher Scholarship, and a National Association of Agricultural Educators Upper Division Scholarship.
