Illinois Central College to Host Agriculture, Diesel, and Horticulture Showcase

Illinois Central College will host a special Agriculture, Diesel, and Horticulture Showcase for potential students to learn about in-demand careers. The showcase, sponsored by Compeer Financial, provides attendees an opportunity to speak with ICC faculty, local employers and vendors, and industry specialists from a range of career and technically based programs in agriculture, diesel, and horticulture.

The event will take place on Friday, September 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the ICC East Peoria Campus at the Agricultural and Industrial Technologies Building. The free showcase features a student panel Q&A session, industry speakers, and lunch. Representatives from 20+ local businesses will be on hand to talk about career opportunities in the Agriculture, Diesel Powered Equipment, and Horticulture industries. Tours of the Agricultural and Industrial Technologies Building, the Horticulture Center, and live demonstrations by current students using the latest technology to diagnose and repair agricultural, construction, and heavy truck equipment will be offered.

“There are many jobs available in the agriculture, horticulture, and diesel industries, but only a limited number of employable applicants trained in the emerging technologies,” said ICC Agricultural and Industrial Technology Professor Grant Grebner. “That’s why ICC has partnered with local businesses in these fields to successfully train students with the desired high-tech skills.”

Attendees will have access to information regarding degrees, certificates, and “Earn and Learn” opportunities in these fields. ICC Enrollment Services also will be on hand to answer questions regarding applying to the College and specific program admittance requirements. To register and for more information, visit icc.edu/ag-diesel-hort or call ICC at (309) 694-5200.

Attached is an agenda for the days activities in addition to a spreadsheet FFA advisors can use to register large groups instead of individually online.
