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.
