Sara Schmidt’s deep understanding of the University of Idaho’s ties to the state’s agriculture sector has helped shape the university’s strategic planning process.
Her work with the Idaho Cattle Association, Idaho Rural Partnership, and Idaho Soil and Water Conservation Commission has fostered collaboration and success within many facets of Idaho’s agriculture industry.
She worked with the UI College of Agricultural and Life Sciences for more than 20 years as an adviser and supporter.
Her work as a legislative aide to former Senator Larry Craig was instrumental in facilitating the connection between CALS, Craig and federal appropriations for research and extension.
Appointed by President Bush, Schmidt served as regional director for the USDA Farm Service Agency, where she was responsible for the western U.S.
Most recently, she has served as an Idaho representative to the Council for Agricultural Research, Extension and Teaching.
Schmidt was honored at the Silver & Gold Celebration April 10 in Moscow.
