TVCC Ranch

Font Size:

TVCC has an educational opportunity unlike many other community colleges – it has a program that combines classroom education with lessons in the real world. The program offers instruction in agriculture and ranch management and utilizes not only the classroom, but also educational field trips to various operations within the area and "hands on" experiences on a registered Charolais cattle ranch owned and operated by the college.

There are up to three students who live in the bunkhouse and work on the TVCC Ranch during the year. They work ten hours per week to pay for their rent and utilities. Hours worked in addition to the first ten each week are paid to the student at the current minimum wage. Sometimes there are also students who live in the community and work at the ranch. These students commute to work. These students gain valuable experience as well as an opportunity to build a solid reference for the future. To apply to live and work on the ranch, send an application to the TVCC Ranch Manager at 100 Cardinal Drive, Athens, Texas 75751.

The TVCC Ranch Bunk House was built in 2003 and dedicated to the memory of long-time agriculture and ranch management instructor Wayne Burkhalter. Mr. Burkhalter was a very dedicated ag and ranch management  instructor at TVCC for many years. There is a plaque on the wall inside of the bunkhouse in memory of Mr. Burkhalter and the dedication ceremony.
