A big CONGRATS to CALS undergrads Kate Griswold and Luke Drachenberg, who are among 40 students from around the nation selected by Agriculture Future of America to be 40 Chances Fellows! They were selected based on their “desire and potential to impact global food security issues” and will be given training and experiences to prepare them to make significant contributions to agriculture and food related issues.
As explained on the 40 Chances website:
Each person has approximately 40 Chances – or 40 years – in his or her adult life to make a positive impact on the world. In partnership with the Howard G. Buffett Foundation40 Chances awareness campaign, Agriculture Future of America has selected 40 freshmen students to take part in the 40 Chances Fellows program.
The 40 Chances Fellows will spend extensive time exploring agriculture and food related issues, especially related to addressing world hunger. As the agriculture industry is faced with feeding more people with fewer resources, this next generation of agriculture leaders has many challenges and opportunities. The program’s objective is to give this group of student leaders an edge when it comes time to graduate, equipping them to make significant contributions to agriculture and food related issues.
