Carley Snider, a junior in agriscience education, was named by Farm Credit as one of their 100 Fresh Perspectives. This program was a nationwide search to identify and honor 100 leaders who are changing rural communities and agriculture for the better.
The search took place between July and December 2015, and netted more than 1,000 nominations from all 50 states. Selected by a panel of experts on rural matters, including Farm Credit leaders and others from around the agriculture industry, the top 100 honorees represent the very best of those positively shaping what is next for rural communities and agriculture.
