Agriculture has been a part of Karlee’s life since she was little. It wasn’t until she learned more about agriculture advocacy that her real passion developed. “I started to realize how the industry as a whole is under represented and needs more educators to teach those who do not have a background or understanding of agriculture,” she said.
Last summer, Karlee was selected as a Lloyd Noble Scholar in Agriculture by the prestigious Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation. The Foundation was interested in her high-tunnel experience. She conducted a container research study with tomato plants and was asked to present the results at a large horticulture show in Tulsa, Okla.
Karlee credits Northark’s agriculture program with expanding her knowledge of agriculture. She is working toward a bachelor’s degree in agriculture communications at the University of Arkansas and is considering getting a master’s degree and doctorate.
Northark offers associate degrees, online degrees, one-year certificates, certificates of proficiency, GED classes and non-credit community education courses in more than 70 areas of study.
