Iowa Corn names Collegiate Advisory Team members
JOHNSTON, Iowa | Three Siouxland-area college students have been named to the 18-member Iowa Corn Collegiate Advisory Team, comprised of Iowa students pursuing degrees in agriculture.
Lucas DeBruin, a student at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Mitchell Post, a student at Northwestern College in Orange City, and Nicole Langbein, a student at Morningside in Sioux City, will assist the Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) and the Iowa Corn Promotion Board (ICPB) in developing targeted programs to enhance the organizations’ relationships with individuals pursuing careers in agriculture production and allied industries.
In a press release, Iowa Corn Promotion board director Larry Buss said the group is eager to foster relationships with soon-to-be agriculture workers and leaders.
“The future of Iowa Corn depends on the organization’s ability to offer relevant programming, advocacy and services to new stakeholders entering Iowa’s agricultural sector,” Buss said.
Two Morningside students earn Principal scholarship
SIOUX CITY -- Two Morningside College students are among 25 college students from Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin selected for the 2018 class of the Principal Community Scholars Program.
Representing Morningside are Alyssa Nehring and Sarah Sadler.
The recipients were selected after being nominated by faculty or staff from their college or university and a rigorous review process.
The program is designed to encourage student leadership to meet community needs. Selected students will receive a $1,000 scholarship from Principal upon completion of a service project. This is the second year of the program, which last year supported 20 students in Iowa and California.
