Ag Business majors awarded rural appraisers scholarship
Three agricultural business students from the Department of Economics were each recently awarded $1250 scholarships by the Iowa Chapter of the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers (ASFMRA).
Michael Lee, graduated spring 2011
"I thought of economics as a good business related major that could apply to many careers and fields. It could take me in many different directions, like sales, finance, or management. I wanted something that would cover a broad spectrum."
Katey Johnson, graduated spring 2008
"In college, I couldn't tell if I would really use economics one day, and wondered how well it would apply to the job. Today, I give customers market advice and talk to them about how the market affects prices. I use economics on a day-to-day basis and it's very beneficial in my work."
