About Us

Southern School of Agriculture (1953-1973)
The Southern School of Agriculture, a high school with grades 9 through 12, specialized in agriculture, business, and homemaking, operated six months each in residence and in work experience. The talented and dedicated faculty, staff and nearly 1000 students continue to have a lasting impact in their communities.

University of Minnesota, Waseca (1971-1992)
The University of Minnesota Waseca, a two-year college, provided a unique blend of technical training and courses in arts and sciences. Students were prepared for career opportunities or for college transfer options in agriculture and services to rural areas. This nationally recognized college touched the lives of nearly 20,000 students. Their achievements attest to the commitment of the student-oriented faculty and staff of UMW.

The Association provides scholarships, networking opportunities, and provides this newsletter to keep the members informed about the activities of the Association. It also is a forum for everyone to catch up on what our fellow members are doing in their careers.
