Some local leaders have graduated from the Michigan Agricultural CORE program.
CORE stands for Communication, Organization, Relationships and Engagement. The program was developed by and is supported by the Michigan Potato Industry Commission, the Michigan Wheat Program and the Michigan Soybean Committee. The idea for MI Ag CORE came from the lessons learned by these organizations’ leaders working in the agricultural “trenches” on a day-to-day basis. The second graduating class worked in areas of communications, human resources, and governance with a two-part “DISC” talent/skill assessment.
Graduates include Jenna Falor (Bad Axe), Ethan Patterson (Saginaw) and Josh Taylor (Frankenmuth).
