Career Exploration in Agriculture - See Steve Duerson in Room 618

The University of Kentucky, College of Agriculture has a group called Jr. MANNRS.  Their goal is to increase the number of underrepresented groups in Agriculture related careers.  Please share or have students see me in room 618 if they have an interest in Agriculture.  I would love for Dunbar to have a group of students attend this conference.


Several years ago, we had a student attend this conference.  Her name is Antyana C.  After attending this conference it opened up so many doors and connections for her.  Now this young lady is a junior at Kentucky State University doing great things!

12th Annual Jr. MANRRS Leadership Institute

The 12th Annual Jr. MANRRS Leadership Institute will be taking place December 1-2, 2023, in the Martin- Gatton College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. The Jr. MANRRS Leadership Institute is designed to stimulate the interest of youth grades 7th-12th to the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture, and Mathematics (STEAM). The program introduces the students to M-G CAFE through hands on experiences through leadership development and learning about the programs in the college.


Thank you

Steven Duerson
