Ag students, industry highlighted at Northcentral Technical College

Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Secretary Ben Brancel and Wisconsin Technical College System President Morna Foy joined area high school students at Northcentral Technical College recently to highlight "dual credit" opportunities in the agriculture sector.

Dual credit allows students to simultaneously earn high school and college credits with a single course or sequence of courses. Over the past five years alone, participation in dual credit has doubled, with more than 21,000 high school students across the state taking advantage of opportunities through partnerships developed with their local technical colleges.

"This event at our Agriculture Center of Excellence highlights the uniqueness of our dual credit opportunities for high school students," said Dr. Lori Weyers, NTC President. "We're proud to work with our K‑12 partners to create seamless pathways from high school to NTC to a bachelor's degree and beyond."

Weyers invited students from six area high schools to talk about their experiences earning transcripted college credit at NTC and to discuss their future education and career plans. The students have each received college credit in courses related to dairy herd management, veterinary science and other ag-related topics.

"Ag represents who we are in Wisconsin — hardworking, community-minded entrepreneurs," Foy told those gathered. "What a pleasure to be here with these students today and to hear about their accomplishments and goals."

WTCS Board member Becky Levzow, owner of a fourth-generation dairy farm in south central Wisconsin, and NTC Board Chair Paul Proulx also visited with students during the event.

All 16 of Wisconsin's technical colleges offer dual credit opportunities for high school students in a variety of sectors, including manufacturing, business, health care and others.
