CAFNR Alumni Association Awards

The MU CAFNR Alumni Association members are dedicated to the future of agriculture and share a commitment to agricultural progress. Agriculture today is a complex, changing industry. No industry faces greater opportunities or challenges in the 21st century. The continued education and development of new agricultural leaders is vital. Alumni help develop future leaders of Missouri agriculture in several ways: student recruitment, scholarship fund development, public relations programs, student career development, legislative interaction and leadership recognition.
