ag awards

Students in the Northeast Texas Community College Agriculture Department won big last week as they took home multiple awards from the Texas Junior College Agriculture Association (TJCAA) Competition at Sam Houston State University.

Michael Rundle placed third in Horticulture Quiz, third in Wildlife Quiz and second in Agronomy. Rundle also served as Vice President of State Officers at the event. Michael and Alex Plunkitt won third place in Public Relations and the team helped Peter Feijen place first in Scrapbook.

The wins earned NTCC enough points to take home second place in the Sweepstakes category.

“Excellent work that is done all year long and year after year at our Ag Program always pays off in the end,” Rene’ McCracken, NTCC Ag Director, said. “I’d like to offer special thanks to our instructors Chad Henry, Laci Derrick and farm manager Doug Beason, who worked hard preparing and coaching our students.”
