Author: Cassie Lenzenhuber

My name is Cassie Lenzenhuber. I was raised in the small town of Jonesburg, Missouri, about 50 miles east of Columbia. The town may be small, but growing up there has taught me many big lessons. It instilled in me a love for agriculture and a love for people. Graduation is not far off; I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

I am excited to see what the next chapter of life has in store for me!
