Pennsylvania Committee

Targeting Excellence formed a Pennsylvania committee in 2014 making it the 3rd state to join the organization.  The first Pennsylvania fundraiser was held in 2014 and students scholarships have been awarded in the state since that time.

The Pennsylvania Committee is comprised of individuals from food production systems, allied industries, and university professors all volunteering their time and resources to raise these funds from national and regional partners. All money raised in the state of Pennsylvania will stay in the state for scholarships for Pennsylvania students.  Attracting the brightest and most motivated students, allowing them to have face-to-face time with future employers, and allowing them to graduate without a heavy debt load will not only be good for the students, but will also make our future industry stronger. More face-to-face time among the leaders of agribusiness, production systems and agricultural colleges can also lead to new alliances to ensure the survival of our industry.
