Hello, there. My name is Rhiannen Schneider, and I am a sophomore studying agriculture at the University of Missouri. Post-graduation, I hope to work on preserving water quality both domestically and internationally through sustainable environmental practices. Growing up, I didn’t have a lot of exposure to the agriculture industry outside the normal realm of public school. However, when I joined the Savannah FFA Chapter, I quickly realized not only the worth of American agriculture, but the ways in which it impacted my everyday life. From that, I was able to develop a passion for spreading the good news of agriculture. While at Mizzou, I have become even more deeply involved in agriculture. I am a member of the Sigma Alpha Sorority for Professional Women in Agriculture where I serve as a professional development co-chair. Although my ties to agriculture have existed for a while, I started college in pursuit of an engineering degree. Coming to the realization that the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources was the place for me was a path-altering decision that I could not be more thankful for. It is because of that experience that I am thrilled to be writing for CAFNR Corner Post this semester.
