Last time, we explored what participants in the 2019 Land O’Lakes Global Food Challenge Emerging Leaders Program learned and how they planned to put those learnings into practice. Here, the Emerging Leaders talk about what made the biggest impressions on them during their travels.
From Washington, Kansas, Scuyler is excited to dive into the opportunities to learn more about sustainability in agriculture. Currently studying food science and industry at Kansas State University with a secondary major in global food systems leadership, Scuyler's interest in sustainability and security developed through exposure to the different types of agriculture across the state. Speaking with state leaders in different positions, first-hand testimonies from rural Kansans, as well as growth opportunities at his University is what lead Scuyler to develop a passion for discovering more efficient ways to be stewards of the land while feeding a growing population.
