DC3 Hosts Careers in Corn

Published November 7, 2017

On Tuesday, November 7th, Dodge City Community College will host Careers in Corn. This new program, supported by Western Plains Energy, LLC and Farm Credit Associations of Kansas, familiarizes students with the corn industry and its many available career paths. Anyone is welcome to attend, but primary participants are expected to be those students majoring in Ag-related fields or those with Agriculture backgrounds. Students will be able to network with corn industry professionals and are encouraged to bring along their resumes for critique.

“I was approached by Kansas Corn at the 3I show, and as we typically host industry people for guest speakers, I was thrilled to invite them here,” said Dave McCollum, DC3 Assistant Professor of Equine Science. “Hopefully, visitors will learn where they might fit into the corn industry and learn about the best opportunities for themselves.  Dodge City Ag programs include AAS degrees in Farm and Ranch Management, Agronomy, Ag Food Chain Security and Ag Business, as well as a pathway through an Associate of Science for Pre-Veterinary Students.  We also articulate with Colby for those wishing to get a Vet Tech degree.  We do offer scholarships for qualifying students!”

Information will be shared, at Careers in Corn, about the new Kansas Corn Collegiate Academy and Next Generation Scholarship programs for college students. For more information about the Careers in Corn program, visit Any questions may be sent to Kaitlin Donovan at
