UW agroecology student attends agricultural outlook forum


University of Wyoming agroecology student Tyler Harran was one of 30 agricultural university students nationwide who attended the U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Outlook Forum Student Diversity Program in Arlington, Va., Feb. 21 to 22.

"I feel very privileged to have been selected," said Harran. "Of the 30 nationwide, it was an honor to be invited as the only agroecology major and to represent the University of Wyoming."

Students were chosen to attend based on their winning "Agriculture as a Career" essays.

"When applying, I knew the chances of being selected were slim," said Harran. "So I basically convinced myself to write the essay on the grounds that it would be good writing practice without expecting necessarily to have been chosen."

Harran, from Jamestown, N.C., is an Ag Ambassador for the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

"My key takeaway from the event is that food equals security," said Harran. "In this regard, it is a national priority to preserve and maintain our food production systems. Those without food and water are generally discontent and unsettled."

A junior, Harran will receive his undergraduate degree in agroecology in 2014.

"Tyler is serious about the future of agriculture," said David Legg, professor of entomology and Agricultural Experiment Station statistician, who nominated Harran.

Harran has also worked on the ACRES student farm at UW.
