Ag Student of the Month for December

Southeast Community College’s Beatrice Campus has recognized Alanna Fangmeier as the “Ag Student of the Month” for December. To be selected, Ag instructors look at a number of factors including grades, attitude and progress in the program.

A native of Hebron, Fangmeier chose SCC because of the hands-on courses and how she learns better this way. She is studying Agri-Business, but is unsure about her future. She hopes to someday transfer to a four-year institution.

“I grew up raising sheep with my family and fell in love with agricultural industries,” she said. “It has always been a passion of mine to advocate.”

Fangmeier’s favorite memory from SCC was working with the junior high FFA members when they visited campus for livestock judging. Her instructors say she goes the extra mile.

“Alanna stepped up to the plate with livestock judging,” said instructor, Annie Erichsen. “She didn’t have to help with tabulation but jumped right in and was the last to leave.”

SCC Students of the month receive a special certificate, bookstore gift card and the opportunity to be the Ag Student of the Year.
