Why Ag Tech at The Pantheon?

In order for Knox County to continue its prosperity in the agriculture industry, Ag Technology is paramount. As a state and national leader in gross agricultural output, our farmers must stay on the cutting edge of specialty crop production, diversifying cropping systems, and lead the field in soil health, conservation and sustainability. The Secondary Agricultural Education supported by Vincennes University helps farmers with key technological skills.

"The Pantheon is the shot of adrenaline that our area needs to make the turn out of generational poverty, low-paying jobs, and the steady loss of bright young minds. We will do this by investing in young, dynamic, and talented individuals and giving them the space and resources to create and test their ideas. We will activate our community with programming that helps them succeed via partnerships with key institutions and experts.”
