University of Wyoming Student Participated in Agriculture Leaders Conference

University of Wyoming student Sami Jo Heitsch of Cheyenne joined more than 550 of the nation’s top collegiate agriculture students to receive career preparation training at the recent Agriculture Future of America (AFA) Leaders Conference in Kansas City, Mo.

For four days, Heitsch, who studies agricultural communications and journalism at UW, participated in skills training provided by agriculture and education professionals. At the conference, she was among agricultural students and professionals who have invested in students both financially and as mentors.

DuPont Pioneer, one of the organizations that supports the AFA training, invested in Heitsch. While at the conference, she was invited to a special breakfast hosted by DuPont Pioneer representatives, who discussed agricultural opportunities and mutual interests.

Heitsch was competitively selected by AFA and its partners for conference participation and the opportunity to connect with DuPont Pioneer. The leaders conference is just one collegiate and young professional leader development program offered by AFA, which prepares the next generation of agriculture leaders.
