The Ag Ed Enthusiast - Fall 2015

We extend a happy holiday greeting to those of you receiving this issue of The Ag Ed Enthusiast! Thank you to the many individuals and organizations who have contributed to the success of our Agricultural Education Program. 

The University of Minnesota’s Agricultural Education Program is pleased to now offer two majors: Agricultural Education (teacher licensure) and Agricultural Communication & Marketing (ACM).

From scholarship deadlines to student celebrations, it's a busy year ahead for Ag Ed!

Students in AFEE 1001 were provided a new opportunity this year - to experience diverse aspects of agriculture by attending one of two field trips. 

The Agricultural Education Program welcomed two new staff members this fall.

These students will be spending their spring semester off-campus, taking the lessons and skills they have learned throughout their degree program and applying them as teacher candidates!

Agricultural Communication & Marketing students are more connected with the job market than ever.

On October 1-3, our very own Agricultural Education Program hosted the North Central American Association for Agricultural Educators (AAAE) annual conference! 

Sarah Marketon is a senior in Agricultural Education - Leadership and Communications with a minor in Animal Science.

Charles (Chuck) Anderas is an Agricultural Education graduate student at the U of M.

Chris Ovrebo is an Agricultural Education alumnus with a rich history at the University of Minnesota.

The National FFA Convention was held in Louisville, Kentucky from October 28-31, 2015.

Now in its second year, the roles and responsibilities of the Ag Ed Ambassadors are expanding and being refined as we work to incorporate our Agricultural Communication and Marketing (ACM) students into the program.
