Agriculture Instructor Steve Sears, Marvin Schlatter from ADM and Tasha Hickert, Greenhouse manager were on hand for the formal grant presentation.
Members of K-State Master Gardeners of Hutchinson work on a flower garden area of campus. The blooming garden is adjacent to the HCC pond, behind historic Lockman Hall.

The two-day, hands-on learning event features live scenarios where paramedic students work side-by-side with actual medical, fire and emergency personnel from around the state to gain valuable training and life experience in responding to major trauma incidents. Field Ops are a unique learning experience, and is one of the largest live-action emergency scenario training events in the country.
