The University of Tennessee at Martin will have five student representatives at the annual Agriculture Future of America Leaders Conference held Nov. 10-13 in Kansas City, Missouri. Students will have the opportunity to connect with hundreds of other students from across the country, hear from industry leaders about current trends and challenges, discover internships and job opportunities, and discuss the agriculture industry with like-minded individuals.
