Hey y'all! My name is Claire Shipp. I am a freshman at the University of Missouri majoring in agricultural education and leadership with a minor in science and agricultural communications. While I am new to the University, I am excited to be a part of Mizzou Greek Life and the Honors College. I hope to become involved in Mizzou Alternative Breaks, Student Government and other service or professional development organizations. My hometown, Chillicothe, Missouri, is known as the “Home of Sliced Bread.” My hometown is also the main factor in my involvement in the agriculture industry. Even though I was raised in a predominantly agriculture-based community, my family had no connection to agriculture. However, at a young age I became involved in 4-H and the National FFA Organization. While journalism and Corner Post are new to me, I am excited to grow in my communication and research skills this semester. I hope to learn more about Missouri agriculture, CAFNR, and the University of Missouri. In addition, I am eager to develop my voice as a writer, and begin sharing my passion with all of you!
