Klootwyk named National AFA Leader and Academic Scholar

Kansas City, Mo. —  

On Nov. 2, Emily Klootwyk, recent graduate of Knoxville High School, will be honored as a National AFA Leader and Academic Scholar during a celebration of agriculture at the 2012 AFA Leader in Agriculture Award Dinner. 

The AFA Leader in Agriculture Award Dinner is held in conjunction with the AFA Leaders Conference — a dynamic leader event, which connects the top agriculture students with industry professionals. AFA is looking forward to welcoming Klootwyk along with over 500 other students from across the nation to the Conference in Kansas City, Mo. , Nov. 1-4. Klootwyk will have the opportunity to network with peers and professionals and invest in her personal development. The AFA Leader and Academic Scholarship provides for Klootwyk’s attendance to this event and support toward her freshman year tuition costs at Iowa State University where she is studying animal science and industry. 

Klootwyk and her fellow scholars will not be the only ones recognized at the Leader in Agriculture Award Dinner. This event will also honor Howard G. Buffett, farmer and philanthropist, and Dr. Barry Flinchbaugh, Kansas State University professor and agriculture policy expert, who are AFA’s 2012 Leader in Agriculture Award Recipients. Both Buffett and Flinchbaugh will engage with the students by sharing how they have taken action and followed their passions into fulfilling lifeworks.  

AFA’s programs, including Conference and these scholarships, are made possible through partnerships with businesses and individual donors. If you are interested in attending the Leader in Agriculture Award Dinner, please visit www.agfuture.org/leaderinag for more information.
