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.
