Author: Elizabeth Wyss

Hello, Corner Post Readers! My name is Elizabeth Wyss, and I am a freshman at the University of Missouri. I am from Russellville, Missouri. I entered my freshman year at Mizzou as a biochemistry major, with a grand plan of attending pharmacy school one day. However, I discovered that biochemistry was not for me, and my passion for defending and furthering the agriculture industry was stronger than my interest in science.

Writing for Corner Post this semester is an exciting opportunity for me to explore what my future will be in the world’s most important industry!
