Our next graduating senior is Nicholas Schuh in both Agronomy and Seed Science. In the spring semester, Nicholas will be attending Kansas State University in the plant breeding graduate student program. When Nick leaves, he will miss the agriculture community.
“I have learned as much from the people in agronomy as I have in the agronomy courses and that has made me a very well rounded and current agronomist.”
Introducing Derrick Kapayou, our next senior spotlight. He is a soil science and environmental quality option student. After graduation, he will be attending graduate school. Derrick is going to miss his mid-day naps after he graduates. But he is excited for the income that accompanies full time employment.
His favorite memory from Agronomy was Dr. Christian’s crop seed ID class, and his time spent in the greenhouse learning plant specimens. His Iowa State experience has involved bartending on the weekends and Agronomy studies all week.
December graduation is quickly approaching us! Over the next few weeks, stay tuned to our Senior Spotlights showcasing the hardwork these seniors have put in during their time here.
