Alex Voichoskie, Agriculture Management and Production, Beatrice Campus
Growing up on a farm, Alex Voichoskie knew she wanted a career in agriculture. When it came time to go to college, Alex was looking for somewhere affordable but personal, with a program where she could “get her hands dirty.” Most importantly, she wanted somewhere that felt like home.
SCC’s Agriculture Management and Production program in Beatrice fit the bill. At an estimated cost of $8,280, the program allows students to use the latest technology on a 600-acre lab. Students learn on the latest equipment and are given real-world experience.
By the time Alex graduated from SCC in 2018, she’d been named the Agriculture Program Student of the Year and received the National Association of Farm Broadcasting Grow Smart Scholarship. She went on to University of Nebraska-Lincoln and graduated in 2020. She now works at Nebraska Rural Radio Association as Multimedia Producer.
“I attribute many of my accomplishments and opportunities, both personal and professional, to SCC. I am incredibly proud to introduce myself as an SCC alum.”
The new Agriculture Career Center in Beatrice will create opportunities for more students like Alex to make an impact in the field.
