On Wednesday, March 28, students and organizations of Javelina Nation put together another wonderful Spring Fling! Despite concerns over potential rain, our Spring Fling weather was perfect! Thank you to all those who helped put together yet another wonderful event, as well as those who came out to show their support!
A&M-Kingsville student, George Chavarria, represented Javelina Nation in Washington D.C. on National Ag Day. He visited with Sonny Perdue, United States Secretary of Agriculture, during the celebration. Last summer, Mr. Chavarria worked at the USDA-Agricultural Research Service as a summer intern under the USDA-NIFA Hispanic Service Institute funding from Texas A&M University-Kingsville. He is one of five Animal Science students who were accepted into the Texas A&M University Department of Veterinary Medicine Vet School program for Fall 2018.
