I'm an Agronomist

Congratulations to our spring graduates! 

Brittany Abernathy 

Meet senior Brittany Abernathy, originally from Indianola, Iowa! After graduation, Brittany will be moving to Bear, Delaware where she will be a full time employee for Corteva Agrisciences. Her favorite class during her time here was Weed ID with Dr. Hartzler.

Once Brittany moves, she is definitely going to miss being able to live so close to all of the friends that she has created during her time here. Her favorite memory while being here would have to be meeting with different professionals in the same field and hearing their different experiences and stories.

Rebecca Clay, agronomy alumna (2016) swore-in as a Peace Corps Volunteer in June 2017 and has been living and working in a rural community in the foothills of the Himalayans in Lamjung, Nepal since. At site she works with community members to identity and pursue agricultural practices which address issues of malnutrition, soil degradation, and labor outmigration. Here is an account of her experience so far.

“I’m lucky to have been placed at a site where I can see the Himalayan mountains from my bedroom window—breathtaking, and the geologic giants keep my work and life in perspective.
