I feel like everyone here at Panhandle State truly cares about and has invested in me. I enjoy the fact I know most of the people I go to school with.Dillon Roesch
Originally from McClave, CO, he will be graduating from OPSU in 2022 with a double major in Agronomy and Ag Business.
Dillon feels extremely fortunate to have attended Oklahoma Panhandle State University. One day he received a call from a professor in the College of Ag, Science, and Nursing asking him to come tour campus, which left a lasting impression on him. He stated, “When Dr. Bensch called, I was excited because he expressed so much passion towards this career field. I credit him for giving me a solid platform to build on my knowledge of agronomy.”
Department Chair of Agronomy, Dr. Curtis Bensch eagerly commented, “Dillon is a fantastic student who excels academically. His cheerful attitude and interest in class discussion is what makes him a delightful student to have in class. I expect great things from this young man.”
He was immediately drawn to the small-town feel of Goodwell. Dillon says his favorite thing about OPSU is the people and the professors. “I feel like everyone here at Panhandle State truly cares about and has invested in me. I enjoy the fact I know most of the people I go to school with.”
As well as being a member of the Crops Judging Team and a campus ambassador, he is also the treasurer of the shooting sports club, works in the OPSU Firestone Meat Lab, and is also an active member of the Methodist Student Center.
As if all that wasn’t keeping Dillon busy enough, he still finds time to go hiking in the Colorado mountains, skiing in the winter, and fishing. Mr. Roesch also has his pilot’s license and has been known to jump out of a plane or two.
This summer, Dillon will be starting an internship as a Crop Protection Sales Representative for Gowan USA, LLC, working in Western Kansas, the Oklahoma Panhandle, and Eastern Colorado.
