The National Ag Science Center is pleased to announce the confirmation of the Modesto Junior College’s Agriculture and Environmental Sciences Department induction into the Ag Hall of Fame. “As we celebrate our 20th Annual Ag Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Gala, it is fitting for the inductee to be an educational institution. The MJC Agriculture and Environmental Sciences Department has one of the finest agriculture programs in the nation. We are thrilled it will take its place alongside the other notable companies and individuals who have impacted the community in the Ag Hall of Fame,” stated NASC Director, Dr. Emily Lawrence.

Come celebrate all that makes the Central Valley great while highlighting the accomplishments of the MJC Agriculture Department. Catch-up with friends at the cocktail hour, place your bids on the premium silent auction items, and tour Ag In Motion to learn more about our mobile education experiences. During dinner we hope you will raise your paddles high to participate in the highly-anticipated live auction and paddle raise. Listen as students share the impact of 100 years of agriculture education history in a poignant presentation by current a recently graduated students.

The Ag Hall of Fame Gala provides vital support for the National Ag Science Center mobile agricultural science education programs. We look forward to sharing the evening with you!
