Southeast Community College names Ag Student of the Year

BEATRICE – Southeast Community College’s Beatrice Campus has recognized Connor Bartels as its “Ag Student of the Year” for this academic year.

Instructors examine several factors in naming the student of the year, including grades, attitude and progress in the program.

A Tecumseh native, Bartels said he chose SCC because of the hands-on experience and the smaller class sizes. He has been elected as president of the College’s Ag Club. He plans to continue his education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to major in Agricultural Education.

Ag instructor Annie Erichsen describes Bartels as “a very polite, well-rounded student who is willing to help out students in class when he sees them struggling.”

Bartels received a special certificate, as well as a gift card to the Campus Book Store.  His photo is displayed in Ford Hall with past recipients of the award.
