From the Alumni…
We firmly believe that the Indiana Agricultural Leadership Program is a valuable, life-changing experience for participants and a sound investment for those interested in promoting ag and rural leadership in the Hoosier state and beyond, but don’t take our word for it. Please read what our ALP class graduates and supporters say about the program.
Tom Daugherty ~ ALP Class 4 ~ Agriculture Educator ~ Amboy, Indiana
“As I reflect on the effect ALP had on my career and life, the list is enormous. The network, the contacts, and the leadership skills you receive are only the short list of what one receives. I became more proactive in looking at programs. I was one of two selected from Indiana to be a part of the Toyota Teacher Exchange program to Japan. Having a toolbox filled with leadership skills helps in problem solving, community involvement and servant – learning.”
Kenda Resler Friend ~ ALP Class 11 ~ Corteva Agriscience ~ Indianapolis, Indiana
“Being in ALP Class 11 helped me gain true appreciation for the forces shaping agriculture; from rural policy to the halls of DC. Only by understanding the forces at work to help advance – or hold back – agriculture can a leader really determine where to engage. Active leaders who participate and apply passion are key to the advancement of modern agriculture.”
