Parent/Guardian Information

Governor's School for Agriculture not only taught me about the many important aspects of agriculture, but also allowed me to work with real-world problems and introduced me to many interesting opportunities within the field.  I enjoyed the experience of meeting new people, living somewhat like a college student, and, of course, learning more about agriculture through the courses and professors. - Ruwaa Abu-Ageel, Class of 2019
