The Badger Professional Chapter of the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) has selected LSC senior Danielle Brown, who is double majoring in Dairy Science, as its student representative from Wisconsin for the upcoming Ag Day Celebration 2012 in Washington, D.C. on March 8.
Brown will help recognize the contributions of agriculture and raise awareness of the importance of agribusiness to the national economy. She was one of only three students nationally selected for sponsorship by their professional chapters. A Dodgeville native, Brown grew up on her family’s 200-acre, 60-cow farm in Iowa County.
Brown is a member of the UW-Madison chapter of NAMA. “I initially joined NAMA on a whim, but I’ve never regretted my decision,” said Brown. “The real-world marketing experience as well as the friendships I’ve gained are invaluable. NAMA truly provides endless experiences to grow personally and professionally.”
As a student-run professional organization, UW-NAMA helps students strengthen their marketing skills through hands-on experience and prepares them for a career in agricultural marketing. The chapter is advised by LSC Faculty Associate Sarah Botham.
