Austen's Supervised Agriculture Experience began when he purchased the agribusiness, Minnick's Lawn Care, based out of Chillicothe, Missouri. Austen decided to expand the business in 2021 by purchasing another lawn care business based out of Lake Viking in Daviess County. In 2022, Austen made another investment by purchasing snow removal equipment and diversified his operation through offering these services in the mowing and landscaping off-season. Austen provides lawn mowing, fertilizer applications, aeration, spraying, dirt work, rock spreading, skid loader work, block laying, ice melt, as well as snow removal through his agribusiness which is now named, Minnick's Snow N Mow.

Sergeant Jeremiah Grider came into the Health sciences technology program this week with his explosive detective dog Gracie and his drug detective dog Enoch. The health care career field is a service industry which provides a service to society and people, much like our partners in law-enforcement and other areas of service. Healthcare workers face unique challenges in healthcare in regards to laws and legal issues. We appreciate our law-enforcement partners coming in and speaking with our class to help us better understand these relationships
