On Monday April 13th, the Florida Chapter initiated 13 pledges into the Fraternity. The ceremony took place at the Straughn IFAS Extension Professional Development Center. We also had 3 honorary initiates this semester, representing Family, Youth and Community Sciences, Entomology and Nematology, and Food Science and Human Nutrition departments. It was a great night filled with delicious food, good conversation, and an excellent speaker. Dr. Tony Adendoro from the Agricultural Education and Communication department talked about leadership, branding, and who you are. He is also the director for the Challenge 2050 project, which is a project headed by CALS to target the challenges in agricultural and natural resource industries by the year 2050.
We also had awards for our pledge class for most outstanding officer, most outstanding pledge, and best paddle. Congratulations to the winners: Carson Cooper, Katie Bassett, and Madison Goodwin.
We can't wait to see how these new brothers will continue to foster our founding principles and help our chapter grow. Congratulations PC Spring 2015! Welcome to the brotherhood.
