IAS High School Outreach Program Update



IAS High School Outreach Program Update

November 16, 2018  (Monticello - Corporate Office)

IAS is excited to announce the addition of Kristina Stevenson to the HR Department this year. She is heading the revitalization of The High School Outreach Program. Kristina has a degree in education as well as HR and brings a unique perspective to this program. Our 2018 program hit the ground running on October 30 with a career fair at the Monticello High School. This program allowed High School Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors the opportunity to interact with Colleges and businesses to gain a better understanding of options for the future. Sandy Kelchen, HR Generalist, and Kristina Stevenson spent a productive morning interacting with many students, sharing information and encouragement for the future of Ag.

The first week of November, the IAS Highschool Outreach Program took our message into the classroom. Kristina spent time in 5 classrooms over a three-day period sharing information about coops and how they function, career opportunities, and educational options for entering the Ag Industry workforce. From Intro to Ag to FFA Leadership classes, presentations were well received with some lively discussion and excitement about the future of Ag.

As the year progresses, more classroom presentations and career fairs are scheduled to continue spreading the message about exciting and productive careers in Ag!
