Forty-one Dodge City High School students participated in the first-ever Ag & Diesel Day on Thursday, Feb. 27 in Dodge City.
Ag & Diesel Day is designed to expose students, who have shown interest in agriculture-related trades, to the wide variety of opportunities for education and employment in this area.
As part of the day’s activities, the group toured KanEquip, Inc., Truck Center Companies, Foley Equipment, and American Implement, before touring the welding and diesel tech programs at Dodge City Community College (DC3).
During lunch at the DC3 Student Activity Center, DC3 President, Dr. Harold Nolte awarded six seniors with scholarships: Brian Contreras, Fernando Frances, Alexis Gusman, Erik Morales, Carlos Rodriquez and Joel Vargas.
Ag & Diesel Day is a partnership between the Dodge City/Ford County Development Corporation, Rural Education & Workforce Alliance, Dodge City High School and DC3.
