(Lamar, Colorado; July 10, 2015) After an extensive search, Lamar Community College welcomes Greg Cash as the new full-time faculty member and department chair for the Agriculture Department.  Cash has spent his entire life around agriculture and has been an ag teacher for 22 years.  He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Ag Science and Ag Education from Oklahoma State University.

Cash comes to LCC from Springfield High School, where he has served as the Vocational Ag Instructor for the past 18 years.  During his time at SHS, he established a small school farm and ranch, built a greenhouse, and helped build a bus barn.  He has been proactive in building the program and expanding the ways in which his students learn about agriculture.  During this time he was also involved in the Vocational Agriculture Teacher Association in which he served as President in 2007-2008.

“His experience in teaching, Perkins Grant administration, program development, and vocational education knowledge will serve him well at LCC.  We are very fortunate to have Greg on campus,” said Cheryl Sanchez, Vice President of Academic and Student Services.

Cash will be teaching at least three courses each semester as part of his duties.  This fall he will be teaching World Interdependence/Population/Food (AGR 260), Animal Health (AGP 215), Animal Sciences (ASC 100), Freshmen Ag Orientation (AGR 100), and a Livestock Practicum course (ASC 288).

When asked what his vision was for the ag program’s future, Cash said he hoped to return the program to and beyond its former state.

“Ag is my passion; it’s what drives me,” said Cash.  “I’m excited to get in, evaluate where we are as a school, and then build from there.  I look forward to working with the students and rebuilding the program.”

“Greg brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the program.  His work in the industry has made him well-known in the state in both secondary and post-secondary education,” commented LCC President John Marrin.  “We are truly excited to have Greg on board and part of the LCC family.”

Cash is originally from Wynnewood, Oklahoma, where he grew up on a ranch.  He currently lives in Springfield, Colorado, with his wife Darcie.  He has two children in college.  When he isn’t spending time with his family or working on the farm, he enjoys camping and fishing.
