Meet our team!
Maggi Anstett, sophomore, Agriculture and Natural Resources major interested in the Teachers Certificate Program for Graduate Students. Maggi has a huge passion for every field in agriculture, not just farming. She has received the highest degree through the FFA, The American Degree, by spending countless hours volunteering, working on the family farm, attending workshops, conferences, competitions, and much more. Her career goal is to become an Agricultural Educator, so she can teach future generations the importance of agriculture in their everyday lives. If she could better the world in one way she would knock down all the abandoned buildings in cities and build gardens. This would clean up the air, grow the pollinators populations, and make the world a little more enjoyable to be in.
