Future Ag Leaders Scholarship 2017-18 Recipient: Heather Schnitker
Congratulations to Heather Schnitker on your Iowa Select Farms Future Ag Leaders Scholarship! Heather is a 2015 graduate of Iowa Falls-Alden High School and is studying animal science at Iowa State University. She is the daughter of Allan and Tiffany Schnitker of Alden.
A 9-year 4-H member and 6-year FFA member, Heather says she chooses to pursue a career in agriculture because “I was born into it and cannot imagine my life without it. Growing up, my family raised and showed hogs and cattle.”
“I am focusing my animal science degree on swine, animal nutrition and beef,” she says. “Once I have graduated, I hope to start my career in feed sales.”
Heather describes Iowa Select Farms as “good for employees through events such as the Iowa State Fair and Adventureland family days.”
Allan is a sow farm manager and has been with the company for 24 years. Tiffany is a production well-being specialist and has been with the company for 24 years.
