Student Highlight

Leah Joyner, MS-STLeah Joyner

Leah's passion for food and agritourism inspired the second year MS-ST student to co-host (with Dr. Carol Kline) the Sustainable Farm Tour this past year in the Greenbriar Valley of West Virginia. Leah recently gave her mid-semester presentation on the experience. This is one presentation you will not want to miss out on! View it now!!

As pictured above, Leah also has a profound passion for photography. Her work is amazing and you can view her collection here.
