KFAC Summer conference

Photo For the first time in KFAC history, we will host a one-day summer conference for Kansas teachers on June 2, 2016. "Creating the Best Day Ever" will inspire teachers to find unique ways to make agriculture a regular part of their teaching and in turn give their students hands-on learning they are sure to remember. Professional development credits will be earned!

The conference is being held at the Salina Bicentennial Center. Area hotels are available with a special rate for attendees needing overnight accomodations.

With an all-star line-up of keynote speakers and workshop presenters, you will leave the conference feeling rejuvenated, excited and confident about teaching agriculture in your classrooms.

Interested in sponsoring this event? Please email the KFAC office at ksfac@ksu.edu or call (785) 320-4350. Marketing and recognition will be available for conference sponsors.

Keynote Speakers

Dr. Monte Selby will be the inaugural keynote speaker. Dr. Selby is a Kansas native who is passionate about education. He inspires teachers and students through his gift of music. Dr. Selby will use humor, interaction, a bit of research and critically acclaimed original music to explore the importance of creating a vision for a "Best Day Ever." Selby is an experienced teacher, principal, professor and father of four who believes that educational staff having a great day can change a student's educational experience forever. Read more about Selby on his website.

KFAC is also excited to have local celebrities, the Peterson Farm Brothers, as lunch speakers, sponsored by Chuck Henry Sales in Solomon. These brothers will share their passion for agriculture, the importance of educating youth about where their food comes from and share some of their most popular parodies.
