A Message from the Student Editor

Ellyn SwansonAgricultural Education, Communication & Marketing (AECM) student assistant and U of M Senior Ellyn Swanson wrote and edited this semester’s e-newsletter. Ellyn is from Trimont, Minnesota where she grew up on her family’s crop farm. She is an Agricultural Communication and Marketing major with an emphasis in Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences. The Ag Ed faculty and staff would like to offer our sincere thanks for her hard work writing and editing articles!

“This was my fourth semester with the AECM Department as their Communications Assistant and newsletter editor, even though I have no idea where all of that time went, I loved every minute of it! I found my passion for agricultural communication working in the department and have now utilized that passion in other areas of my life. Being able to communicate the stories of people in agriculture and the work they do is incredibly important to me, and I hope I can continue to do that in my career after graduation.”

“A sincere thank-you to all AECM faculty and staff. You’ve helped me develop my communications skills and have challenged me to become the best writer I can be. I could not have done this newsletter without all of you! ”
