Mission Statement:
Our Agriculture Science program provides education and training for many diverse careers in the agricultural field. The program incorporates three elements: classroom instruction, supervised agriculture experiences, and FFA activities.

FFA is an intra-curricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. FFA is one of the three components of agricultural education. The FFA has the unique characteristic of binding the agriculture program together and serving as the catalyst to advance the student more rapidly toward success.

The Agriculture Science & Technology Academy Program is widely regarded as one of the most successful programs in the Nation. ASTA FFA has won countless district and area championships along with holding 35 State Championships and 17 National Gold Emblem Championships in its 20 + year history.

After receiving his master's degree from Texas A&M Kingsville in 2001, he became an Assistant and then Vice-Principal at Jordan MS. His next step began in 2007 where he moved to Central Office until 2015, becoming the Assistant Principal and then Vice-Principal at Warren HS. In 2020, Mr. Bohlken became the first Principal at the new Agriculture Science & Technology Academy. His wife Ada was appointed the Principal of the New Sotomayor HS in 2021.

Howdy! I am excited to be able to serve as the Associate Principal of the new Agriculture Science and Technology Academy here in Northside. I first began to work with our agriculture students at O’Connor High School last school year and discovered how much character and resolve they have. It is amazing the time and effort that our students and their families put into the hands-on agricultural experiences that take place on this campus and around the community. I hope to use my talent and experience to help guide our students to achieve their fullest potential in all fields of study at the Agriculture Academy.

I was born and raised in Caldwell, Texas and graduated high school in 1999. I graduated with a BA in History from Sam Houston State University in 2004 and started my teaching career in Austin, Texas. I arrived to the “Promised Land” of Northside in 2008 and continued my teaching career in social studies at Clark and then at Brandeis. I received my Masters degree in Educational Leadership from UTSA in 2011 and started administrative work in 2013 at Zachry Middle School. I came to O’Connor High School in 2016 as an Assistant Principal and fell in love with the OC community. It is my sincere honor and privilege now to assist in transitioning the very successful O’Connor Agriculture Program into the Agriculture Science and Technology Academy opening this school year. I look forward to the work ahead and the opportunity to serve this wonderful community.

It is his belief that it is important to share his passion, knowledge, and love for Agriculture with others, which is why he loves working with our students.
