The Agricultural Education and Communications Alumni Association hosts a reception in conjunction with the VATAT conference each year. Alumni, family and friends are invited to attend.
Several have mentioned that they were not aware that we had an Agricultural Education & Communications Alumni Association. It is alive and well and continues to grow. Please consider joining!
The association began in 1990. Each year a reception has been held at the State Agri-Science Teacher's Conference with the first one being held in Amarillo, Texas. We also have participated in the Texas AgriLife Extension Conference and the Regional Agricultural Communications Conference.
Officer elections are held every three years and the association has a Constitution and Bylaws in place.
Each year the Agricultural Education & Communications Alumni Association awards numerous scholarships deserving students.
