Our Story/Katelyn Celani
Plain and simple, Katleyn Celani loves people. And with seven other siblings and tons of nieces and nephews, she is no stranger to being around lots of them.
Celani’s passion for people coupled with her large family background helped direct her studies, which ultimately became human development and family studies and education. Instead of just seeking one of these majors, Celani pursued both. Penn State’s offerings have helped enable her goals.
First enrolled at Penn State – Schuylkill, Celani’s schedule was full of education classes. Noting her love of working with others, Celani’s adviser recommended she enroll in an HDFS class, she said. The class, which focused on child development, involved a project that gave her the opportunity to observe children, she said.
“I loved the atmosphere,” she said.
