Nebraska LEAD XXX travels to Europe


Twenty eight Nebraska LEAD XXX Fellows recently returned from the 2012 International Study/Travel Seminar to Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and England.

"Our international study is designed to provide firsthand appreciation and understanding of our international community and the potential for people of all nations to work together," said Terry Hejny, Nebraska LEAD Program Director and group leader.

During the Jan. 10 to 25 seminar, LEAD Fellows attended briefings at the U.S. embassies in Dublin, Ireland and London and met with American business, agricultural trade and commodity groups. Additionally, LEAD Fellows were able to observe agricultural production with visits to farms, along with briefings at agricultural colleges and research centers.

"The people-to-people encounters provided the members of Nebraska LEAD Group XXX an opportunity to view characteristics, conditions and trends of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and England and determine relationships to issues and situations in our country," Hejny said.
