Associate of Applied Science in Agriculture
Brian Michener enrolled at YVCC’s Grandview Campus with a plan to pursue his interest in agriculture. “I chose agribusiness because I grew up farming and love agriculture,” stated Michener. His family owns and operates Bill’s Berry Farm in Grandview, Washington. Working on the farm and going to school keeps Michener busy but also provides him with a unique hands-on experience in his field. He has had the opportunity to increase the farm’s agritourism business through u-pick festivals throughout the summer and fall seasons. A successful student in the classroom, Michener was also able to secure financial support from the Yakima Rotary Trust earning both the Yakima Rotary Vocational and Mary Monroe Davis scholarships.
