PA Secretary of Agriculture Visits Northern High School

On January 24, 2019, PA Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding paid a visit to Northern High School along with Senator Mike Regan, and Representative Dawn Keefer. The visit was part of the Department's Planting the Seed Tour, an initiative of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to highlight career and educational opportunities in agriculture. Northern students gave the visitors a tour of their agriculture facilities and program at Northern High School.

Eight students signed letters committing to post-secondary education, or post-graduation employment, all within the field of agriculture. Special thanks to the Northern Agriculture Teachers Meagan Smyers, Troy Summey and Carol Richwine for all of their ongoing hard work and dedication to this program.
