On November 14th, Elder community service student, Kevin Young ‘15, met the Presidential Pardoned Turkey while tutoring at Oyler Elementary School.  

Each year before Thanksgiving the National Turkey Presentation takes place at the White House. The President of the United States is presented with a live domestic turkey, usually of the Broad Breasted White variety. Since 1989, during the first Thanksgiving of President George H. W. Bush, the president has granted the turkey a "presidential pardon" and thus spared the bird from being slaughtered.
