The Navarro College John Deere Tech Program will host its annual open house beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 26, on the Corsicana campus, which will kick off with an overview in the Bain Center Auditorium and then move to the John Deere facility.

“John Deere is committed to training,” a spokesman said. “Today, millions of dollars are spent each year in training students at dedicated training locations. Partnerships like the Navarro College John Deere TECH School in Corsicana are located across the nation and are in place to train these individuals.

“This program has a history of producing excellent technicians for John Deere dealerships across Texas and the nation,” the spokesman said. “The program is a cooperative effort between Navarro College, John Deere Company and the local John Deere dealerships. Students, dealers and instructors will be able to interact and become more familiar with the opportunities that Navarro College and John Deere have to offer.”

John Deere has a 170-year history of supporting the agriculture industry with innovative products to help farmers feed the world.

“They take pride in knowing that they make farmers’ dreams possible,” the spokesman said.

“Unfortunately, not everyone that has a passion for agriculture is able to farm. Those who fit this profile are encouraged to attend to seek opportunities for training and employment in John Deere’s independent dealer network,” the spokesman said.
