Former TV news reporter Prof. Ricky Telg, an agricultural communications and education professor from the University of Florida, co-teaches agricultural communications theory in our online diploma in agricultural communications. Ricky was in Guelph in March. He met with the present cohort, and shot video footage at the Ontario AgriCentre media centre of participants Kathie MacDonald, Christine Schoonderwoerd, Terry Stevenson and Sarah Van Engelen, discussing various aspects of the program. The videos will be posted on the program website. Thanks to Ricky and his son Brendon, editor extraordinaire, for going the extra mile (and then some) and helping promote the program.
