Competitive Teams

Texas Tech University's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources recently passed a huge milestone when its teams brought home the 100th national championship title to the South Plains-based academic unit. Since Texas Tech's beginning in 1923, CASNR has provided programs of excellence in teaching, research and public service to prepare students for employment in the modern agricultural and renewable natural resources industry. Included in that effort is a long-standing competitive streak that presses its students toward excellence. It is so appropriate to celebrate 100 national championships as Texas Tech University approaches a century of education, research and service, said CASNR Interim Dean Steven Fraze. Cindy Akers, CASNR's Associate Dean for Academic and Student Programs, adds judging team participation is a great example of the hands-on learning outside the classroom.
