In Profile: Lubbock's Randal Howard takes reins as Ag Council President
A life-long Red Raider, the decision to attend Texas Tech University was second nature to Lubbock native and junior, Randal Howard. A member of Alpha Gamma Rho and the Pre-Vet Society, Howard was first introduced to the Ag Council his freshman year. Furthering his involvement, Howard then served as a council representative his sophomore year.
Upon running for the position of president, Howard said, "I had seen what ag council did for the community and for the college and wanted a chance to lead this group in our efforts to give back." Holding the position of Ag Council president for the 2016-2017 school year is just one of Howard's many responsibilities, as he pursues an animal science degree in hopes of attending vet school.
This leadership position has allowed Howard to enhance his leadership abilities, while making connections with students, faculty, and staff throughout CASNR.
The purpose of Ag Council is to form a working relationship between all members of CASNR, as well as with members of the agriculture and natural resources industry. Representatives from CASNR clubs form Ag Council, and collaborate to plan and execute activities, while working toward the betterment of the college.
Looking ahead to the spring semester, the council will kick things off with 'Mr. CASNR' in mid-February. Later, the annual ag honors banquet, ag awareness week and Ag Olympics will take place.
"Serving as Ag Council president has been one of the best experiences of my college career," Howard said. "I have made unforgettable memories with great people and look forward to next semester's events."
