Crowder Aggies Triumphant at National Contest

Twenty seven Crowder College Agriculture Students spent their spring break at the National Post- Secondary Agriculture Students (PAS) conference/contest in St. Cloud, Minnesota, March 11-14th, 2014. After fourteen hours on the road, the students were ready to network and compete with over 600 fellow agriculture majors from colleges and universities from across the country. Crowder College was proudly represented, with sixteen plaques awarded to the Aggies.

Kylie Ehlers, Anderson, MO, a freshman Pre-Vet major, was selected amongst a very qualified group of upperclassmen to serve as President-Elect for the national organization. Ehlers currently serves as Missouri’s PAS president.

“The Crowder Aggies represented the college with professionalism and class throughout the conference, and many of them were recognized for their achievements, but ALL of them are to be commended for their efforts,” emphasized Dr. Terry Halleran, instructor and advisor.
