Plant Pathology Association volunteers at Ag Day

Posted: April 30, 2014

Every April, the Plant Pathology Association (PPA) volunteers at the College of Agriculture Science’s Ag Day. Located in the HUB, the PPA displayed posters on educational opportunities for undergraduates as well as on the Plant Disease Clinic, passed out brochures on Pennsylvania mushroom production and the diseases threatening Penn State’s historic elm trees, and taught Penn State students and State College community members about plant pathology through interactive games.

This year’s display was coordinated by PPA President Sarah Bardsley.  The PPA and Department of Plant Pathology and Environmental Microbiology was represented by faculty member Judy Sinn, graduate students Freddy Magdama, Anita Behari, Grace O’Keefe, Emily Pfeufer, Laura Ramos-Sepulveda, and Carla Lanze, and undergraduate students Kristina Gans, Jennifer Evans, and Sara Getson.
