Harrison VanDeWalle Selected as Agriculture Future of America Ambassador

Harrison VanDeWalle, an Agricultural Business Management major, has been selected to serve as an Agriculture Future of America (AFA) Ambassador on our campus. VanDeWalle was selected for this role through a competitive application and interview process and will now work to build bridges among his peers that foster engagement and innovation in food, agriculture, and natural resources. 


AFA is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing undergraduate students into the next generation of leaders in the agriculture industry. VanDeWalle and his 31 fellow Ambassadors will interact with agribusiness leaders, campus faculty, and fellow students as they represent AFA. 


“In the last three years with AFA, I have built relationships with incredible people from every corner of the agriculture industry,” says VanDeWalle. “In my time with the organization, I have grown personally and professionally. As an Ambassador, I hope to help other students do the same.”


During their year of service, the Ambassadors will lead initiatives to increase awareness of AFA’s programs fostering engagement and innovation in food and agriculture.
