BEATRICE, Neb. — Southeast Community College’s Beatrice Campus has recognized Connor Bartels as the “Ag Student of the Month” for December. To be selected, Ag instructors look at a number of factors including grades, attitude and progress in the program.
A native of Tecumseh, Bartels said he chose Southeast Community College because of the hands-on experience, and the price of tuition. One of his favorite memories was being elected as president of the College’s Ag Club. He plans to transfer to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to major in Agricultural Education.
“I want to be involved in the agricultural industry because I grew up on a farm and I knew I would be part of the industry for the rest of my life,” he said.
Students receive a special certificate, bookstore gift card and the opportunity to be the Ag Student of the Year.
