YPS and Industry Partners Launch Exciting Opportunities for Students in Agriculture
Here in central Nebraska, AGRONOMY is a big, big deal. In 2014-15, we launched an “Agronomy Academy” with two neighboring school districts that is funded by annual $10,000 gifts from Monsanto, Pioneer, Mycogen, and Syngenta. Students meet on site at a production facility three days a week to learn agronomy concepts as well as gain exposure to the numerous careers available with some of these leading companies in the world. We had tremendous feedback in year one and look forward to year two beginning this month.
For 2015-16, we’re now adding an exciting work certification program through the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis, Nebraska. Students at York High School will not only be able to choose from a robust curriculum of typical offerings but will now be able to work on actual 2-year job certification programming in the important areas of chemical application, diversified agriculture, or irrigation technology.
Students will be able to graduate York High School with a traditional high school diploma AND a 2-year work certificate from the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture making themselves immediately hirable for $40,000-$50,000 jobs while accruing no college debt! Reinke Irrigation and Central Valley Ag will be providing adjunct faculty members through the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture to provide hands-on courses for our students right on our high school campus.
These are nationwide and worldwide leading companies that we are thrilled to work with! We feel like York High School is helping to lead the way in how private businesses and public education can work together to provide tremendous opportunities for PreK-12 students.
The York Athletic Booster Club is having its annual Hamburger Feed on Friday, September 4th at East Hill Park before the first home football game against Waverly. They will be serving hamburger, hot dog, and Polish dog meals from 5-7. Come out and support the football team and athletic boosters!
