Student Success

"Being involved in the Precision Ag program has provided me with hands-on training and given me the experience I needed to work with the public. The knowledge I obtained at West Hills has also given me the communication skills to succeed in my line of work."

Overview

The Agriculture Ambassadors is an organization made up of students whose purpose is to act as a public relations branch of the Farm of the Future Agriculture Program at West Hills College Coalinga. The Ag Ambassadors recruit throughout the state of California, from the California/Oregon border to the California/Mexican border and everywhere in between.

When recruiting at high schools three goals drive the endeavors of the group by:

  1. First and foremost, encouraging high school students to pursue higher education and attend college;
  2. Promoting agriculture and encouraging students to pursue a career in the field of Agriculture;
  3. Finally, if they are going to attend college in the field of Agriculture then why not attend West Hills College?

The Ag Ambassadors offer two options when recruiting at high schools:

  1. Short Presentation: 15-20 minute classroom discussion informing students about the benefits of college, a career in agriculture and WHCC’s available programs.
  2. Class Takeover: 10-15 minute classroom discussion informing students about the benefits of college, a career in agriculture and WHCC’s available programs followed by a hands-on lab exercise utilizing some of the technology that we use in our everyday class work.

If you are a high school teacher and would like the Ag Ambassadors to come to your school or have any questions, please contact the Agriculture Department at 559-934-2700
