“Since I graduated, I have been employed at Landview Inc. in Minidoka Idaho. I am in middle management (Dry Fertilizer Manager) and responsible for the dry fertilizer orders that come in. I manage a team of five to seven drivers, the inventory and help keep many little projects running.
My communication, leadership and computer skills have been a big plus for this job. There are all sorts of people with different attitudes. So knowing how to deal calmly with it all can be a challenge. I will say that my classes on communication have helped me immensely.
I am enjoying my job and hope to be here long-term. It was a struggle to go back to school at a later age than most college students but it was well worth it. Holding down a full time job and full time school was challenging to say the least, but I'd go back and do it again.
My life will be forever better because of this program. Thank you.”
“The UI/Twin Falls Ag program was great and was a choice I'm glad I made. The professors and staff truly care about you and your future and were always there to help. Getting my degree from University of Idaho here in Twin Falls was definitely one of the best decisions I've made.” Strayer is a foundation seed assistant for Monsanto.
