Nothing in your life or job is going to be given to you. Athletics and academics at Northwest have taught me to be resilient through adversity.

The Northwest Experience

Ben was a Bearcat football player and an agronomy and agricultural business double major who grew up in a small town similar to Maryville. He credits his career readiness to the profession-based, hands-on learning experiences at Northwest.

He took classes that included plant breeding and applied future marketing to expose himself to real-life experiences in the agriculture world. Ben believes these experiences and lessons in adversity on the playing field and in the classroom helped him become career ready, day one.
