BROOKINGS — Four area residents have been selected for the 30-member South Dakota Agriculture and Rural Leadership Class VII.
They include: Erin Bergeleen and Tracey Walsh, both of Kimball; Cayla Christiansen, Platte; and Ross Tschetter, Salem. This leadership program, which starts in November, is designed to provide leadership training to rural residents from farming, ranching, agri-industry and agricultural organizations. The goal is to assist program participants in gaining the vision, knowledge, confidence and commitment necessary to assume leadership roles in South Dakota’s rural communities and agricultural industry.
Throughout the 18-month program experience, participants will participate in 10 in-state seminars, one national study seminar to Washington, D.C., and a two-week international study seminar.
All seminars are centered on local, regional, national and international agriculture.
