Students from colleges and universities from across the nation recently came together for the annual National Professional Agricultural Student (PAS) Conference. Six students from the Sheridan College Agriculture program traveled to Springfield, Illinois for the annual conference and many of them returned with top honors. Sheridan College students Madison Clarke, McKinly Hepp, and Paige Padilla received third place for the Conservation and Natural Resources team competition. The students also received individual recognitions. Hepp received second place for Employment Interviews in Livestock and Dairy Production. Padilla received third place, and Clarke received second place, for Employment Interviews in Forestry and Natural Resources.

According to the PAS website, this event is a one-of-a-kind national collegiate-level competition-style learning model that gives students the practical and hands-on development opportunities essential for career success. Students are guided by faculty advisors to develop the technical, professional, and soft skills required for career success within the agriculture industry.
