Datu is pleased to award to Amanda Locker a full scholarship to attend the 73rd annual conference of the Soil and Water Conservation Service (SWCS). As a graduate student in Agricultural Engineering at Purdue University, treasurer of Purdue’s SWCS Student Chapter, and the wife of an Indiana farmer, Amanda has a great deal of energy and expertise to bring to this year’s conference.
Amanda’s passion is taking Purdue’s conservation-related research and relating it to farmers in an easy-to-understand format. When she graduates this fall, she will get to practice this important work on a daily basis, as an Extension Educator with Purdue University Extension in Hamilton County, Indiana.
We are excited to encourage bright, young researchers to prepare for careers protecting the nation’s soil and water resources. Congratulations, Amanda, from the whole Datu team!
