aggies-1.jpgLast year, six top-performing students from Texas A&M University attended the Viva Fresh Expo through a scholarship from the Aggies for Fresh campaign. This year, in partnership with Texas International Produce Association (TIPA), Aggies for Fresh has expanded the scholarship to ten talented Aggies that will be present throughout the Viva Fresh Expo in Austin.

The ten students who will be walking the show floor applied for the scholarship through the Aggies for Fresh campaign and were hand selected by Dan’l Mackey Almy ’94. With seven graduating seniors looking for full-time employment and three seeking summer internships, these Aggies are eager to take their education and passion to the next level by exploring career opportunities in fresh produce – they are our industry’s future super stars!

Two of the graduates who attended Viva Fresh last year have found careers within the fresh produce industry since the expo. After these successful placements, we were even more encouraged that the Aggies for Fresh campaign could be another valuable solution in our industry’s efforts to attract top talent.

New this year, there will be an Aggies for Fresh reception held Friday night, 4 pm – 5 pm at the Hilton Hotel, and is sponsored by DMA Solutions, Lone Star Citrus Growers, Texas Farm Credit, Tex Mex Sales, Triple H and Wonderful Citrus. The reception is open to all attendees for an opportunity to meet with the students one-on-one before the show on Saturday.

Here’s an introduction to the students who will be walking the show floor with the DMA team at Viva Fresh:
