CURTIS, Neb. – Ron Rosati, dean of the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture at Curtis, plans to retire Aug. 5 from NCTA. Rosati was tapped as head administrator for the University of Nebraska’s sole two-year institution in July 2013.
Before completing his University of Nebraska service at year-end, Rosati will serve as senior advisor for the Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture (RICA) in Kigali, Rwanda. Opening in September, RICA is an English language institution dedicated to educating and inspiring a new generation of innovators in agriculture in Rwanda.
“Under Ron Rosati’s leadership, NCTA truly reached new heights in providing academic and financial access to higher education, as well as career preparation in the ag and veterinary technology industries,” said Mike Boehm, NU vice president for agriculture and natural resources, and Harlan Vice Chancellor for the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
“I want to thank Ron for his exemplary service and dedication over the past six years and wish him the best as he transitions into retirement.”
Kelly Bruns, director at NU’s West Central Research and Extension Center based in North Platte, has been named NCTA interim dean, while continuing to serve in his WCREC role. Bruns will lead NCTA campus administration with associate dean Jennifer McConville.
“It has been a privilege for me to serve NCTA as dean,” Rosati said. “The college is an exceptional place to work due to its small size, focus on agriculture and veterinary technology, and its emphasis on experiential learning.”
Rosati is a native of New York and has earned degrees in agricultural education and agronomy. He earned his doctorate from Iowa State, masters and bachelor’s from Cornell University, and associate degree from SUNY Farmingdale. Prior to moving to Nebraska, Rosati served in administrative capacities as provost at Southeast Missouri State University, provost at Alfred State College, State University of New York, and was a dean at Texas A&M University, Kingsville.
Rosati taught agricultural engineering technology and aquaculture for 19 years at Texas A&M University–Kingsville, Illinois State University, The Ohio State University – Agricultural Technical Institute, and Iowa State University.
Rosati led strategic initiatives at NCTA including a 28.5% enrollment growth from 2013-2018, increased fiscal strength from deficit to fiscal health, and added academic programs in agricultural welding, equine industry management, a general agriculture online degree certificate, and partnerships in dairy and poultry management.
“NCTA has been recognized nationally for the quality of its academic programs and the success of its graduates. It’s been very rewarding for me to work with the faculty and staff who are responsible for those successes,” Rosati said.
Other administrative progress at NCTA the past six years included developing new procedures and policies for advising, admissions, registration, student payment procedures, student transfers, academic catalogs, student and employee handbooks, and Title IX and ADA compliance.
Increased appropriations by the Nebraska Legislature enabled significant campus progress in programs, student resources, and pay equity for faculty. New initiatives in public relations and recruiting, federal approval for enrolling international students, and reaccreditation were further benchmarks.
Bruns, who holds a doctorate in animal science, has served as director of WCREC since Nov. 2015. Jerry Volesky, longtime range and forage specialist, will serve as interim associate director at WCREC.
A national search will be launched to identify a new permanent dean of NCTA.

The Air Force Prep Huskies banked in a 3-pointer off the boards as time expired to sink the McCook Community College Men Tuesday in the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center 81-80.
MCC had taken the lead on sophomore Peanut Cunningham’s (Louisville, Kent.) drive down the lane that put the Indians up 80-78 with 9.4 seconds remaining. Air Force Prep got the ball up court for a 3-pointer that missed but Prep’s Marcus Hill ran down the rebound and put it up and in for the win.
“We box out and we’re happy with a great win over a quality team,” MCC Coach Brandon Lenhart said. “Instead we’re disappointed with a loss.”
The two teams battled back-and-forth in the first half. The Indians took an eight-point lead at the 12:56 mark but Air Force Prep fought back to lead by five points at the 7:12 mark. MCC took the lead back but the Huskies worked a last-second shot to end the first half and brought them to within four points of the Indians 40-36.
“We’re just having a hard tie guarding in half-court,” Lenhart said.
MCC stretched the lead to double-digits in the early part of the second half until the Huskies switched things up defensively.
“They went to a zone and it slowed us down for four or five possessions,” Lenhart said.
The Huskies cut the MCC lead to 62-59 at the 10:00 mark and the game remained tight down the stretch.
“Peanut really lifted us in the second half,” Lenhart said.
Cunningham scored 15 of his game-high 21 points in the second half to pace the Indians. Freshman Miles Black (Jonesboro, Ga.) hit three 3-pointers in the second half on the way to a 17-point night. Freshmen Tyrek Battle-Holley (Jersey City, N.J.) and Mardrez McBride (Augusta, Ga.) both chipped in nine points.
Air Force Prep canned 30 of 55 field goals for the game (56.7 percent) and 14 of 34 shots from beyond the 3-point line (41.2 percent) including 10 of 21 in the second half (47.6 percent).
“You just can’t allow a team to shoot 56 percent for the game, 42 percent from the 3-point line and let them take 34 of them,” Lenhart said.
MCC shot 49.3 percent from the field on 69 shots, and 32.1 percent from the 3-point line on 28 shots,
The Indians out-rebounded the Huskies 35-31 with Sophomore Ron White (New York, N.Y.) leading MCC on the boards with seven.
“I mean there was a lot of good that took place tonight, but in a loss you give up an inch here and an inch there and it adds up,” Lenhart said.
The Indians forced Air Force Prep into 17 turnovers, while committing nine.
The Indians fall to 7-8 on the year and begin Region IX South Division Play this weekend in Colorado, Friday at La Junta, Colo. against Otero Junior College and Saturday at Trinidad State. Then comes two more Region IX road games Jan. 22 at Scottsbluff against Western Nebraska and Jan. 25 at Sterling, Colo. against Northeastern Junior College.
MCC's only home game in the region comes Jan 29 when the Indians host North Platte.

McCook Community College sophomore Anna Sanjuan has signed a letter of intent to continue her basketball career at Benedictine College in Kansas.
“I'm extremely excited for Anna,” said recently named MCC Women’s Basketball Coach Brandon Pritchett. “She has worked so hard to get to where she is at today. Benedictine is a great fit for her both academically and athletically, and that's what it's all about.”
The 5-6 guard from Reus High School in Reus, Spain played in 31 games this season for the Lady Indians and averaged 11.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game.
Her 342 points ranked 10th among all Region IX players. She shot 36.5 percent from the field and 32.9 percent from the 3-point line (also ranked 10th in the region) and 59.3 percent from the free-throw line, getting to the line 108 times on the season – sixth most in the region. Her 121 defensive rebounds were seventh most among the region leaders. Her 95 assists were third most and her 51 steals were fourth most in the region.
At the end of the season she was named to the Nebraska Community College all-conference team.
Benedictine College is a NAIA division I school in Atchinson, Kan. located on bluffs overlooking the Missouri River, northwest of Kansas City, Missouri. The Lady Ravens went 18-13 this past season under Coach Chad Folsom, in his 18th year as coach there. The team has gone to the NAIA Division I championship tournament five of the past seven years.
In addition to being impressed with the school and the coaching staff, Sanjuan said it was very noticeable how cohesive the team was, even in workouts.
“I visited there and was really impressed with the way the team worked together in practice and supported each other in drills.”
She will graduate from MCC with a BS in Science and is looking at teaching physical education.
One of her lasting memories from MCC will always be the first time she stepped inside the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center. “I was so big and my first thought was, ‘this is America and this gym is American big.’ It is so impressive,” she said of the place where she spent hundreds of hours over the past two years.
She said she is extremely grateful to Coach Pritchett, who as the interim coach, helped give her confidence and helped find her a place to continue playing the sport she loves.
“Benedictine is getting the whole package,” Pritchett said. “She is a great person, student, and talented basketball athlete. I'm excited to watch her grow over the next two years there.”
