SHERIDAN — Sheridan College student Amelia Manuel recently earned first place in the Speakers in Agriculture — Impromptu competition at the National Postsecondary Agriculture Student Organization’s conference in St. Cloud, Minn.
Manuel, an agriculture business student from Red Lodge, Mont., edged students from Walla Walla Community College in Washington and Iowa’s Ellsworth Community College, among several others, for the top spot.
“This is truly an outstanding achievement,” Sheridan College agriculture instructor Chuck Holloway said. “Amelia’s dedication and hard work were evident. She is an excellent reflection of Sheridan College’s thriving — and nationally competitive — agriculture program.”
Manuel, a 19-year-old sophomore who will graduate with an associate degree in May, presented on reducing the use of pesticides in the agriculture industry.
Manuel competed at the conference with six fellow Sheridan College agriculture students.
More than 60 colleges were represented at the conference, including several four-year schools.
