Seward County Community College is poised to grow its agriculture program with the addition of two new instructors — one will also serve as a livestock judging coach — and introduce them to the community. In their own words, meet Will Milashoski and Rachael Sirek-Milashoski.
Will Milashoski | Livestock Judging Coach & Ag Instructor
I am originally from Central Illinois where I grew up on a diversified grain and livestock operation. I am a graduate of Lincoln Land Community College and the University of Illinois, where I received both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. I competed on the judging team at both schools, earning several Top 10 finishes and accolades. Along with my parents, my wife and I operate Milashoski Cattle, a purebred Shorthorn and Chianina operation.
After spending the past two years teaching and coaching at the University of Arizona, I look forward to building up the program here at SCCC. I am excited to get to work recruiting, teaching, and building relationships in the community!
My vision for SCCC is to revive the strong tradition and support of the Livestock Judging Team and making it a point of pride for the community. I hope to grow the agriculture program, not just in the number of students, but also in its quality of programming by offering a unique set of opportunities, from Block & Bridle events to community outreach to having animals on campus.
Rachael Sirek-Milashoski | Agriculture Instructor
I grew up in rural Illinois, where my primary extracurricular activity was involvement in my family’s gymnastics business until college. I attended the University of Illinois for both my bachelor’s degree and my master’s degrees.
At U of I, I not only met my husband, I also fell in love with the business side of agriculture and helping producers maximize the efficiency of their operations. Outside of school, my life revolves around our two Australian Shepherds, Piper and Corabelle, and consulting for my family’s gymnastics business.
I’m excited to be here at SCCC and to get to know all of the faculty, staff, students, and community surrounding the college. My vision for this department is to not only serve our community, but to also help SCCC continue its role as a unique college within the state of Kansas. My goal is to build a unique program, drawing students from our service area and beyond with onsite animals, thriving greenhouses, and amazing courses.
