My name is Erin Boedeker, I am a Agricultural Education – Leadership major at the University of Missouri.
My emphasis within my major is Communications and Science and Agricultural Journalism.
I am originally from Elsberry, Mo.
Agriculture has always been a big part of my life. I grew up on my family’s dairy cattle and row crop farm.
In addition to promoting agriculture, some of my other favorite things to do are write, work with people and speak to the public about agriculture.
I knew Ag Education Leadership was the right major for me because it combines everything I want to do into one degree.
After receiving my degree, my hopes are to take my passion and knowledge for agriculture into the city.
I hope to work with a public relations or marketing firm, and work with clients to help the public understand the positive aspects of production agriculture.
I am excited to continue writing for Corner Post, to help build my portfolio, network and get a more hands-on experience with writing in general.
This summer I will be interning with Osborn Barr in St. Louis
Other things I am involved with around campus are Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow and the National Association of Farm Broadcasters. I was also a 2014 Dickinson Scholar.
