management through our annual Faculty Academy.
- Reaching almost 15,750 students in over 650 courses taught by Faculty Academy attendees.
- Reaching more than 1,000 students through irrigation
workshops and competitions at the National FFA Convention & Expo and the National
Collegiate Landscape Competition (formerly PLANET Student Career Days).
- Sponsoring over 55 students and 16 instructors to
attend the Irrigation Show & Education Conference to learn about the
industry and network with potential employers.
