Horticulture Club Will Meet Soon



Karla Donohoe, Student Writer

The Horticulture Club at SCC Beatrice is active for students to join, though the club has not met for over a year.

With spring quarter coming up, leader Kevin Christensen says he plans on holding a meeting very soon with student members.

The Horticulture Club is closely associated with the SCC Agribusiness Club. The Ag club sponsors many activities throughout the year that include many students that belong to both clubs.

The Ag Club meets several times a month headed by Christensen and other leaders. Every spring the club sponsors a dinner banquet for students to kick off the end of winter and a start to planting season.

The club also sponsors a welcome back dinner for students during the start to the fall quarter. Members participated in sand volleyball this summer in Beatrice and every Christmas they sponsor a food drive at the college.

Students that are active members in both the Ag Club and Horticulture Club have a chance to develop their leadership skills by participating in these events. Christensen says the experience that the clubs provide help improve their qualifications for employment in the future.
