Dr. Jamie Cano will retire from The Ohio State University on June 30, 2017.
Dr. Cano has been a staple to not only our department and university, but also to our Ohio agricultural education family since 1988.
Dr. Cano was a key teacher educator for those who attended Ohio State in the 1990’s and continued to engage in teacher education from then until now. Key Ag Ed leadership and service roles in the profession included: Ohio FFA Foundation Board (treasurer), Ohio FFA Camp Board (vice president), Ohio FFA Convention stage left manager, National FFA Board of Directors and Foundation Board of Trustees, National FFA Officer Selection Committee Chair, editor of the Journal of Agricultural Education and editor of the Agricultural Education Magazine.
During his time at Ohio State, Dr. Cano won numerous teaching/advising, service, research conference and journal article awards. As of late, his passion project has been his work in Honduras. He has not only transformed the lives of our college students participating in this study abroad and the students attending through the program sponsored by the Ohio FFA Foundation, but mostly importantly he has transformed the lives of the people of Honduras as evidenced by being given the “Citizen of the Year” award for Choluteca, Honduras this past fall. Dr. Cano’s last activities as an Ohio State faculty member are to take college and high school students to Honduras.
Beginning on July 1, 2017, Dr. Cano will join the faculty at Utah State University. Dr. Cano will have administrative responsibilities as the Associate Vice Chancellor for professional and technical education at USU-Eastern and as an Associate Department Head in ASTE. He will be located at the USU Eastern campus in Price, Utah.
The School of Applied Sciences, Technology & Education (ASTE) is pleased to announce that Dr. Jamie Cano will be joining the faculty
For those of you who have worked with him, been mentored by him and/or have been fortunate enough to be one of his students or advisees, please share in the comments fond memories or thoughts of how he has impacted your life.
