Modesto Junior College in California received a $6,500 student recruiting grant from the USPOULTRY Foundation.

The funds provided by the Foundation will be used to improve the networking ability of the college's poultry program through the use of social media, according to Dr. Mark Anglin, dean of agriculture and environmental sciences at the school. “The grant will allow the poultry science program to develop and maintain a webpage and a Facebook account," said Anglin. 


The USPOULTRY Foundation board approved student recruiting grants totaling more than $180,000 to six U.S. universities with poultry science departments and 14 other institutions with poultry programs. The Foundation provides annual recruiting funds to colleges and universities to attract students to their poultry programs.
