Mitchell Technical Institute grad Collin Anson, of Wessington Springs, was recently honored with the “Spirit of MTI” award. He was among 29 members of the MTI Class of 2018 who were honored at commencement ceremonies held Friday, May 4, at the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD. Anson took home the award within the Agricultural Business program. 

The Spirit of MTI awards annually recognize one student graduating from each program. These students have been chosen by their instructors as the graduates who best embody the “spirit” of MTI and exemplify their chosen occupation through study, hard work, reliability, contribution to their program, and future potential in their employment field.

No stranger to prestigious awards, Anson took home the title of 2016 FFA Star Farmer of South Dakota during his senior year at Wessington Springs High School.
