The ProRanger Philadelphia program is an academic, technical skills training, and internship program that is cooperatively administered by the National Park Service and Temple University. The program was established to recruit, train and employ law enforcement park rangers for the National Park Service.
Students take coursework during the academic year at Temple University and participate in internships at National Park Service sites during the summer. Follow their experiences here.
Today the ProRangers came together to watch Temple University's Women's Fencing team compete against other colleges including Duke, Penn State and even some Olympians from various regions around the world.
ProRanger Manager, Ranger Krug, shared his experiences of when he used to fence for Notre Dame. There are strategies and techniques to fencing that can relate to law enforcement, so it was beneficial for us to view this sporting event.
The ProRangers had a great time! We look forward to getting together soon for another fun-filled event.
