Hello! My name is Madelyn Warren, and I am a sophomore at the University of Missouri. I hail from the booming metropolis of Dawn, Missouri. Dawn is home to exactly 123 people according to Google. Growing up in such a small town meant taking to heart the adage, “it takes a village" and knowing that you would have to drive at least 20 minutes to get to the nearest Walmart. During high school I decided to follow the rest of my family's footsteps and become a member of the Chillicothe FFA Chapter. As a result, I found myself spending most of my time working to develop my Supervised Agricultural Experience. My SAE included raising and selling dairy goats and competing in public speaking contests. Joining the National FFA Organization has helped to cultivate my passion for agriculture, foster my love for communication and led me to serve as a State Officer during my freshman year. I can't wait to see what this semester has in store and hope to dive deeper into agriculture's story at the University of Missouri by writing for the Corner Post!
