Round-Table Career Scramble at Mid Atlantic Farm Show

HCC Instructors Shannon Rabby and Jim Hamilton travelled to Concord, North Carolina this week to speak to high school FFA and Ag students on careers in Natural Resources. The event was part of the Mid-Atlantic Farm Show held at the Cabarrus County Arena and Events Center. The event was organized as a "career-scramble": students were given 12 minutes to visit a table of their choice during an hour period. Shannon's Fish and Wildlife Management table was a hit with many hands-on items, including a fox skin and numerous carnivore skulls. Dead animals are always a big draw! Jim spoke about different career options in forestry such as firefighting, cruising timber, and urban forestry. Over 200 students from four counties participated.
