The annual Texas Junior College Agriculture Association (TJCAA) conference and competition is always a much anticipated event for our NTCC Ag students as well as advisors. This year though we were especially excited to get things back to normal after a two year hiatus due to COVID. It is more of a celebration and appreciation of everything we are all so passionate about than the testing of the skills that we have all learned through our programs. Students from our Ag Club and other community colleges met in Abilene, TX at Abilene Christian University from April 13-15th to compete this year.
