The Agricultural College Episode is designed to profile agricultural trade schools, junior colleges, colleges and universities around the U.S. This episode is an effort to replicate the conversation that prospective students, parents and ag teachers might have with agricultural schools at trade show like the National FFA Convention.
The State of South Dakota, like many other states in the middle of the countries is dealing with the issue of shrinking rural communities and less qualified employees for agricultural companies in those areas. While I am not happy this is the situation for these communities, it does create fantastic opportunities for students who want to work in agriculture and live rurally.
Mitchell Technical College is based in Mitchell, South Dakota and is part of the solution to this problem for the State of South Dakota. Among the opportunities for agriculture students in South Dakota is learning the skills that lead into an agricultural career through Mitchell Tech. for free and having a guaranteed career position when your two year program is completed. This is done through a program called Build Dakota, and there are other programs available as well. Imagine landing your first career position while you are still in high school, having your college 100% paid for and having a job waiting for you when you finished.
Clayton Deuter, the Vice President of Enrollment Services at Mitchell Technical College, joins me on the show today. We will discuss how this works, what the benefits to students are and how to get this done. This is a very exciting opportunity for agricultural students from all across the U.S. to help them find their future.
