Congrats to Ms. McCroskey's Classes

large_Mindy (1).jpgThe CEV Multimedia curriculum that Ms. McCroskey use in some of her classes offers student industry certifications for specific courses. Last year she gave the Elanco Fundamentals of Animal Science certification and the Principles of Livestock Evaluation certification. These are both nationally recognized certifications and the students receive a certificate of completion if they pass. CEV Multimedia also presented a metal sign with the names of the students who passed and the certification name to display in my classroom. Glenn Perryman, who is pictured with Dr. Yost and Ms. McCroskey, is our representative from CEV Multimedia and brought the sign to present.  Students who pass the industry certifications are prepared to work in the animal industry or further their education in a major related to animal science. Last year Ms. McCroskey gave the certifications in the Introduction to Animal Sciences and the Agricultural Production and Technology courses. Congratulations!
