New Member Education Week is held every semester after candidates for membership are chosen. This week started on February 3rd and lasted until Friday February 7th.  The purpose of Candidate Education Week is to teach perspective brothers the importance of teamwork to accomplish a common goal. The candidates are presented with a series of challenges in which they must learn about agriculture, find out information about the fraternity’s history as well as current activities, get to know current brothers, introduce themselves to alumni, and come together as a team. Candidates find out how close brothers are, and brothers have an opportunity to get to know candidates. The candidates are given opportunities to show their individual knowledge, talents and creativity. The week concluded on Friday at the farm of alumni and current brother, Brother Scott Sr. and Brother Franklin Scott Jr. When everyone arrived, we ate a wonderful dinner of pork chops tenderloin, potatoes, baked beans, and bread. For desert we had apple crumble and peach cobbler, all made by Mrs. Scott who is also an alumni of the fraternity. This week is very important to growing our chapter and all active brothers participated regularly. About forty alumni came back to visit throughout the week. We finished the week by welcoming fourteen very strong and dedicated new brothers into our Brotherhood!
