Name: McCord Snider
Major: Youth Development and Agricultural Education
Graduation date: May 2018
Interests and hobbies:
I like to work with youth and educate them about a variety of things, but most importantly agriculture. I have a passion for working with the students and seeing them light up each time they find solutions for the problems they need to solve. Outside of the classroom, I really enjoy spending my free time with family and friends, as well as listening to music, jogging, fishing and playing soccer.
This year on campus, I am serving as the 2016-2017 Purdue Collegiate FFA President. I am also a member of the Indiana Association of Agricultural Educators- Purdue Chapter.
Plans after college:
After college, I plan to have a career within the field of agriculture. I currently am working for Tri Green Tractor- John Deere, as a Lawn and Garden Salesman and am getting to educate my customers about new mower, gator and compact tractor purchases. However, I would love the opportunity to start my own agriculture program and FFA chapter at my home school corporation at the middle school level. I then plan to eventually get married and start a family once I get a few years under my belt out of college.
I would personally like to thank all the donors that donate to the College of Agriculture at Purdue University. With your generous donations, many of my peers and I are able to afford the education and pursue career paths upon graduation from Purdue. Knowing that there are people out there today willing to help students today is a big financial stress reliever for many of us on Purdue’s campus. I want to thank you again for your generosity and continued support for Boilermaker students within the College of Agriculture!
