"I grew up in Raymond, Mississippi on a small farm. My family raised sheep, so it's what I've always known. I came to Mississippi State for undergrad and majored in agricultural engineering technology and business. I thought I was going to get an MBA, then I got to looking into [the Agribusiness Management program], and it was a really good fit for me. I was going get business experience, but I was also going to keep that agricultural background. I am happy with my decision. I wouldn't have done it any other way."
