We were at the 90th Annual Kansas FFA Association Convention on May 30 promoting the milling science industry. Hundreds of FFA members from across Kansas were at the Kansas State Alumni Center in Manhattan, Kansas, for the event.
We visited with around 150 FFAers during the expo – sophomores to seniors, recent graduates and high school ag teachers. We shared information about the Milling Technician certificate program at Cowley College, and about the K-State milling science degree program at K-State.
Those students interested in more information about the certificate program were able to visit with Cowley College representatives who were also exhibiting at the show. The next group of students will start the Milling Technician program in August 2018. High school juniors and seniors are even eligible for a tuition waiver through a Kansas government program.
