"The AG Leadership Program is all about people. The most valuable piece of the program is the connections you make with your classmates. The people that I learned from locally, nationally and internationally were incredible."

Don Lamb
Vice President, Lamb Farms

"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 Daughterty
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, IN

"Three words come to mind when I think of the Indiana Agricultural Leadership Program and those are network, awareness and empowerment. The people that I have been able to meet have really made an impression on me andI’m proud to work in an industry where there are so many bright and talented individuals. I have learned a lot about agriculture in Indiana, but also how it relates to a national and global level. Most of all, I have seen that being involved and active as a representative of this industry does make a difference."

Courtney Knupp, ALP Class 15
