Landee Kieschnick, a junior agricultural communications major from Vernon, has been named Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Ag Council's December Aggie of the Month. Kieschnick said that to be recognized amongst the best students in the college on behalf of the Ambassadors for Agriculture is a humbling experience.
"It's a great honor and I am humbled to have been recognized and to represent the many ag organizations on campus." Kieschnick said. "Being named December 'Aggie of the Month' is a huge accomplishment and is a moment I will cherish for the rest of my career and life."
