Name: Hunter Parrott; Major: Interdisciplinary Agriculture; Classification: Senior; Organization: Alpha Gamma Rho; Hometown: Plains; Month: November
Hunter Parrott, a senior interdisciplinary agriculture major from Plains, received Ag Council's November Aggie of the Month. Parrott said he cannot fully express in words what it means to him to receive this honor on behalf of Alpha Gamma Rho.
"I'm extremely humbled by the title of Aggie of the Month," Parrott said. "I give the entire honor to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I also credit my fraternity brothers and fellow classmates for pushing me to becoming the best that I can be. I understand the importance of this title and cannot fully express the joy it brings to me."
As well as being heavily involved in Alpha Gamma Rho, Parrott can be found in leadership roles in many other organizations across the college. After graduation in May, Parrott plans to take a job teaching high school agriculture and in the future plans to continue his education.
Parrott said his family has gone to Tech for many generations and he is proud to carry on the tradition. He said he values the unique experience students have in the College of Agriculture Sciences and Natural Resources and is proud to be a representative of the college.
"My favorite thing about Texas Tech and CASNR is the work ethic as well as the personality of all of the students," Parrott said. "Everybody knows everybody and we all can get along and have a good time, but we also know how to get things done. I feel like that is something that you cannot just find anywhere."
