CFANS Students Selected for LeaderShape

LeadershapeFor the second consecutive year, students in the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences will have the opportunity to participate in the LeaderShape Institute.

During the second week of January, the 2017 University of Minnesota LeaderShape Institute will be hosted at Camp Induhapi in Loretto, MN. The following CFANS students will be participating:

  • Harley Braun
  • Johanna Knorr
  • Kris Moore
  • Julianna Ng

Harley Braun, a current Agricultural Education student, said, "Through LeaderShape, I am looking forward to gaining skills that will allow me to be a better leader on campus and in the Twin Cities community over the next four years!"

Congratulations to all students that will be attending the 2017 U of M LeaderShape Institute!
