MCC student Henry Ravell embraces technology in agriculture

Henry Ravell has always been intrigued by farming and all that goes into growing a successful crop.

The Howard City man’s interest was truly piqued a few years ago when he received one of Montcalm Community College’s promotional materials in the mail. It mentioned the Michigan State University Institute of Agricultural Technology’s certificate for a remote pilot’s license. Ravell took the courses needed and is now a licensed remote pilot and can fly drones and other small, unmanned aircraft.
