Three Nebraska community colleges exhibit every year at Husker Harvest Days, meeting with potential students and their families and highlighting some of the ag- and business-related programs they have that could be useful for career placement for the next generation of agriculturists.
Much of the programming at HHD for the community colleges is hands-on and skills-related, so students get a taste of programming and careers offered. Here are the colleges that are exhibiting their programs at HHD this year.
Central Community College
Central Community College has been participating at HHD since the beginning. On Lot 232, CCC will promote its precision agriculture program, but staff will also be talking with potential students about two new related programs, including a construction technology and management program, and a heavy equipment operator technician one-year national certification program.
Students can try out the college’s heavy equipment simulator to test their skills. In construction technology and management, students learn useful ag and business skills like rough carpentry, finish carpentry, cabinet making, project management and more.
Northeast Community College
Northeast Community College is expanding its presence at HHD by adding an outdoor exhibit, at Lot 919, to its normal indoor booth in the West Diversified Industries Building.
NECC will bring its new precision agriculture mobile classroom to the show.
This will allow staff to offer applied technology demonstrations like their welding simulator and other training tools to visitors.
The college plans to have sessions throughout the show to give details on the Northeast Community College’s agriculture and applied technology programs.
Ag Ambassadors from NECC will be at HHD, and business and technology broadcasting students will be providing live podcasts.
Southeast Community College
Southeast Community College will be bringing the college’s precision agriculture trailer to demonstrate details on the agriculture and precision ag programs and technologies offered at SCC.
The college’s precision agriculture certificate teaches growers how to best use data to make management decisions, so SCC is eager to demonstrate some of those capabilities at HHD.
At Lot 222, the college will have information about SCC programs that are useful for students making up their minds on careers, preparing students to return to their own farming operations, or for careers in agriculture and agribusiness.
