Our new AAS Degree in Food Processing Technology targets the variety of career options that are available in our region! Please encourage not only your students to attend, but also anyone in your family, neighborhood or circle of friends who is seeking a new job or a career shift. All are welcome to explore the long-term career benefits in food processing technology and to meet some of our local food manufacturers.

Also, everyone is invited to play the “Fun Food Facts – Spin the Wheel” game. The questions are ‘college-level’ with small prizes for correct answers, and every player is entered to win the Mini Shopping Basket Raffle which is filled with locally produced foods and valued at over $125!
