May Agriculture Students of the Month

The co-agriculture students of the month for May are Derek G. and Abby M..  Derek is a senior who took Animal Science 2-Small Animal during the spring semester.  He is always willing to help with projects and consistently turned in high quality work.  Derek plans to pursue a career as a fire fighter and EMT. 

Abby is a senior who took the new Veterinary Assiting class during the spring semester.  Abby, who will be attending Lincoln Memorial University and majoring in the Veterinary Technician program, is passionate about a career in the Veterinary field and that was consistently demonstrated throughout the entire semester.  She always wanted to learn more.
