Congratulations to Cassidy Becker on your Iowa Select Farms Future Ag Leaders Scholarship! Cassidy is a 2017 graduate of the Diagonal Community School District is now studying Ag Education/Elementary Education at Southwest Community College in Creston.

She is the daughter of Joe and Susan Becker of Diagonal. “Agriculture has taught me so many life lessons,” she says. “Lessons such as standing up for what I believe in and how to achieve a goal with a little bit of elbow grease. I want the chance to teach the younger generation these life lessons while making an impact on their lives. I want to be a person they can trust and confide in.”

Cassidy especially appreciates the extra benefits provided to Iowa Select Farms employees such as tickets to concerts, Adventureland and the Iowa State Fair. “It’s impressive,” she says, “with how they give back to employees and their communities.”

Her father, Joe, is the manager of Parker Sow Farm (Sow 16) and has been with Iowa Select Farms for ten years.
