“I believe that the Clearing Corporation Charitable Foundation Agribusiness Scholars Program will enable me to push forward my interest across the various agricultural sectors. More specifically, to be able to connect me better to issues within agribusiness, while at the same time, being a part of the solutions to those problems.”
