Farmer's Daughter: Erin Wagner
Hello, I am Erin Wagner and this summer I am AgUnited’s intern. Growing up on my family’s farm near Primghar, Iowa, I learned many life lessons as well developed my passion for agriculture. From loading and sorting hogs, learning how to drive the tractor and grain cart during harvest season, to halter breaking my show steer for the annual O’Brien County Fair I have always had a direct connection to agriculture. I knew I wanted to pursue a career where I could still be involved with agriculture, and never knew upon going to college at South Dakota State University that the sky was the limit on what I could do. I am currently studying Agriculture Leadership with minors in Advertising and Leadership and Management of Nonprofit Organizations. I keep myself busy with my involvement serving as an Ambassador of the College of Agriculture, Food, and Environmental Science, serving as an club officer for Agriculture Communicators of Tomorrow, member of the Pep Band, and working at the Miller Wellness Center on campus.
I am looking forward to my summer here at AgUnited as I look to learn, grow, and elevate my passion for agriculture through the summer. I am most excited to help plan and organize events and run the different social media channels.
