Notes from Zambia: The Time Draws Near!
Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Brad Leger, Coordinator with the Louisiana State University's Agricultural Career Center's Organization Development and Evaluation Unit.
It is with great pleasure that I submit my first entry into this blog as we launch FFA Global Outreach: Africa and track our journey to Zambia.
It is also a great honor for me to have the opportunity to accompany a high-caliber team of six young agriculturists who hail from various universities across the U.S.A. Besides having proven themselves as great leaders, they will bring their own specific technical agricultural skills, which will be shared with some wonderful Zambian collegues and agricultural producers.
We also look forward to learning about Zambian agriculture, business, culture and dining during our stay.
Our date of departure--July 27--is drawing near and the level of excitement is growing! In future entries, you'll have the opportunity to meet the members of the "Z-team:" Austin, Catharine, Laura, Wyatt, Jake and Caleb. We look forward to sharing our experiences, insights and reflections. Stay tuned!
