My time with the NAFB board has given me the opportunity to be involved with many different aspects of our organization. The mapping tool was a major project that was followed with our current push for new research, both focusing heavily on driving value to our membership.

Greetings from the Southern High Plains! Many NAFB veterans have a working knowledge of my background as I have been involved since 1976.  As a voting NAFB member at radio stations KWNS (now KWLS), KFEQ and WIBW, I enjoyed broadcasting the farm story to listeners throughout the High Plains and Midwest.

The desire for a career in agricultural journalism is grounded in my roots.
