“I’ve been through a lot of leadership courses, including the graduate school of banking, and the SDARL program, it’s a very in-depth dive, a very in-depth look at agriculture in our state, and gives you a much broader perspective both nationally and internationally.”
“The biggest benefit of the SDARL program for me has been the networking opportunities. I’ve had the opportunity to broaden my horizons across the agricultural world inside and outside of South Dakota.”
