Congratulations to Tessa Shields on your Iowa Select Farms Future Ag Leader Scholarship!

Tessa is a graduate Mount Ayr Community High School and is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Therapeutic Recreation at Northwest Missouri State University.

“I have always wanted to help people and with this major, I am able to do that. I always knew I wanted to work in the medical field but didn't know which path I wanted to take. After taking classes and working in the field, I have found a passion for doing this and working with others,” Tessa shares.

Her future career goals are to continue into an occupational therapy graduate program.

Tessa is the daughter of Mike Shields from Mount Ayr.

Tessa cites “Iowa Select is a company that is entirely family-based. It's not just a place for employment, but it is a support system that cares about its employees. They want the best for all of their employers and in that way, they have been extremely successful.”
