KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Caroline Weihl, an Otsego High School graduate from Perrysburg, joined more than 550 of the top collegiate agriculture students Nov. 7-10 in Kansas City, Mo., to engage in career preparation training at the Agriculture Future of America Leaders conference.
For four days, Weihl, who studies agricultural communications and journalism at Ohio State University, participated in soft skill training provided by agriculture, education and facilitation professionals. In the conference environment, she was surrounded by like-minded students, who are passionate about agriculture, and by agriculture professionals who have invested financially as well as relationally in these students' lives.
Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) is one of the organizations that partners with AFA to make this training possible, and was involved specifically in Weihl's experience. While at the conference, she was invited to a special breakfast hosted by ADM, during which company representatives and Weihl were able to connect and discuss her interests as well as opportunities at the company.
"Agriculture is faced with the challenge of meeting the demands of a growing global population and a rapidly expanding global middle class," said Pete Goetzmann, vice president, ADM grain. "The young men and women involved in AFA today are the leaders who will feed and clothe the world tomorrow."
Like all student delegates, Weihl was competitively selected by AFA and its partners for conference participation and this opportunity.
