In April, we continued putting the Green Industry in front of young folks interested in career opportunities! Many thanks to Jennifer Crutchfield for the invite to attend their 2023 Career Tech Education Summit hosting 1,000 high school students interested in hands-on job fields! We also attended the 2023 NC3 Signing Day at Wallace State in Hanceville where students signed letters of intent for applied programs. Many thanks to Jason Bynum, program chair of the Wallace State Agribusiness & Horticulture program, for inviting Alabama Extension and AGITC to support these students signing their letters! We also watched four of their students receive a national scholarship named The Skilled Trades - 3M Transformational Scholarship. Congratulations to all!
Reach out to me at the AGITC if you have questions or need help on figuring out the state certification process. Also, for those of you who have been to class, keep me in the loop on your progress! I enjoy hearing those updates on your progress and have heard some good reports lately!
