Charlie Shultz: Kika de la Garza Fellow for the USDA


Lead faculty of the Controlled Environment Agriculture program (Richard C.) Charlie Shultz spent two weeks at the end of June in Washington D.C. as a Kika de la Garza Fellow for the USDA.

Shultz said, “I was selected to serve as a Faculty member of a Hispanic Serving Institution to gain insight and understanding of the USDA Federal Programs that can benefit my students and my community. A few other Federal programs were also presented including NASA (they need space farmers!!!). It was an honor to represent SFCC and the CEA program. I look forward to sharing the opportunities with students, staff and our local community in Santa Fe.”
