Northwest Agriculture Industry Expo

The Highland Community College Agriculture Program will host the Northwest Illinois Agriculture Industry Expo from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 9 in the Student/Conference Center in building H at 2998 W. Pearl City Rd., Freeport, Ill.

The first portion of the event features rotations of hands-on activities and demonstrations for high school students that align with Highland’s certificate and degree opportunities in agribusiness, animal science, crop and soil science, horticulture, and precision technology.

High school students will network with local agricultural employers after the pathway rotations. In the afternoon, Highland Agriculture students will have the opportunity to meet with several industry employers. College students may share a copy of their resumes with employers, and participate in employment interviews for available jobs and internships.
