The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences had a tremendous impact on Haley during her undergraduate career. She is thankful for the financial support CALS provided her in the form of scholarships.
Besides Haley’s college involvement and professional experiences, she also has her remote pilot drone license. She was able to get this license her freshman year during an internship with Beck’s Hybrids.
The company needed another pilot, and she took this opportunity to learn a new skill and get out of her comfort zone.
“Having a drone license has allowed me to be a bigger competitor for internships, to expand my technological research skills, and have fun,” Stahl said.
When it comes to her experience at Iowa State, it is easy to say she had a very successful and memorable journey. She was able to grow as a leader and as a person through the experiences she had and the connections she made both personally and professionally.
Haley’s advice for current students is to “aim for at least one leadership position while in college and commit to an experience that is new and outside your comfort zone. Doing these two things will advance you personally, career-wise, and organizationally.”
After graduation, Stahl will be working in research or the extension field. She appreciates all who have helped her find success as a student and become prepared for her next adventure.
“Thank you to everyone who has supported me during my time at Iowa State! I feel incredibly blessed for the experiences I’ve had and the wonderful, supportive people I’ve met along the way,” Stahl said.
