Kentonite to serve on OSU student organization Posted on March 20, 2017 0 COLUMBUS — Courtney Fulton, of Kenton, was selected to serve as CFAES Student Council representative for Agricultural Education Society (AES) at The Ohio State University. Fulton is the daughter of Jason and Shelly Fulton and a graduate of Kenton High School. In addition to AES, she is a member of Real Life, Campus Crusade for Christ and is a resident advisor. She will attend CFAES Student Council meetings with the goal of educating AES members about activities and events through the college and to promote AES activities and events to other CFAES students. “I am passionate about educating others about agriculture and feel that everyone should, at minimum, have a basic understanding of where their food comes from. In addition, I loved being a part of FFA in high school and AES provides me with many of the same opportunities I enjoyed at a collegiate level,” said Fulton. “With my new position as CFAES Student Council representative, I hope that by continuing to keep open communication between AES members and others in CFAES, I will help other students in the college realize that AES is not simply an organization for agriscience education majors, but one for students of any major that want to promote and educate about the agriculture industry.” Founded in 1882, AES is the oldest continuously active undergraduate student organization at Ohio State. The organization promotes food, agricultural, and environmental sciences, stimulates interest in the profession of agricultural education and in leadership, acquaints members with the program of agricultural education, and provides fellowship opportunities. AES works with other youth organizations and develops professional competencies to improve the abilities of agricultural education majors.
