Meet Jeremy Scott

Jeremy Scott_2Jeremy Scott
Major: Agricultural Education
Hometown: Kansas City, Kan.
Why did you choose Agricultural Education?
I wanted to learn about real life. I always wanted to be a teacher and I wanted something that will be useful for a lifetime.
How is the Department of Communications and Agricultural Education helping you with your career goals?
I’ve changed my major twice, and this department is simply a lot of help – a very supporting cast. Dr. Washburn and Dr. Wiley, in the Diversity Programs office, have helped me with internships and I am now thinking about graduate school.
What’s your favorite part of being an Agricultural Education major?
The experience. Coming from Kansas City, I didn’t get to see a lot of actual agriculture. So I’m absorbing a lot of information and getting even more experiences!
