North Central Missouri College agriculture students participate in state conference

Eight agriculture students from North Central Missouri College participated in the Missouri Postsecondary Agriculture Student Organization (PAS) State Conference November 15th through the 17th in Neosho at Crowder College.

One hundred twenty students, advisors, and guests from seven Missouri community colleges and universities participated in the conference. The NCMC group had the opportunity to travel to the Bear Hallow Ranch and Preserve in Jane, Missouri for an agriculture industry tour. Conference delegates also voted on an organizational name change from post-secondary to professional agriculture students to align with the national organization.
