Hey there! We are less than a week away from flying into St.Louis, Missouri! I’m very excited to be apart of this trip. There are many things that I’m looking forward to seeing and to be able to go somewhere I have never been before.
Agriculture has been a huge part of my life. I grew up on a grass seed farm in McMinnville, OR. I showed horses and raised market lambs in 4-H since the 4th grade, and was involved with many leadership activities as well. In high school I joined FFA and continued my passion for agriculture. I’m now going to be beginning my Sophomore year at Oregon State where I’m majoring in Agriculture Sciences with a minor in Crop Science with plans on getting my Masters in Education. After school I want to teach high school agriculture classes and share my passion and knowledge for agriculture with others.
What I’m most excited to gain through this trip is to get to see the differences and similarities of agriculture in the Midwest to agriculture here in Oregon. After looking over our schedule I was excited to see that we will get to go tour Monsanto and some of their test plots. I am very interested in crop science, so getting to go there will most definatly Also I’m looking forward to visit Nebraska because both my Mom’s and Dad’s side of the families are from Omaha, and I have never visited there before.
