Feb '07
Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns announced the selection of 11 university students invited to attend the discussions of agriculture's future at USDA's 2007 Agricultural Outlook Forum. The conference, "Agriculture at the Crossroads: Energy, Farm and Rural Policy," is held March 1 and 2 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. USDA's Agricultural Outlook Forum Student Diversity Program was created this year to provide students a unique insight into in their agricultural studies.

"The Forum has a tradition since 1923 of looking towards agriculture's future, and this year, we've created a new opportunity for students to learn about their own futures in agriculture," said Johanns. "Attending the Forum gives our young people the perspective to recognize historic change and the wide range of opportunities in today's world of agriculture."

The juniors and seniors majoring in agricultural-related studies at Land Grant universities were selected based on their essays, "Why I Want a Career in Agriculture."

The students representing their universities are Rosalind Booker, Virginia State University; Meredith M. Esguerra, University of Maryland Eastern Shore; Monique Fahie, Alcorn State University; Sara Falk, Michigan State University; Matthew Greiner, Michigan State University; Alicia Lowe, Virginia State University; Lakeitha Ruffin, Alcorn State University; LeAnn Rutledge, North Carolina A & T State University; Kristen Walker, University of Maryland Eastern Shore; Corrina Willis, Lincoln University; and Victoria Young, Lincoln University.
