New Faces at SGI

 

We are excited to introduce two new faces that have joined the SGI team in Cambridge!

 

Bre Branderhorst graduated from Iowa State University in May with a degree in Agricultural and Life Sciences Education, and joined the team at SGI to lead our marketing initiatives.  In addition to handling SGI’s marketing efforts, Bre will serve as the Administrative Secretary for the Iowa Foundation for Agricultural Advancement (IFAA).  SGI has partnered up with the IFAA team to house Bre, as well as a joint SGI/IFAA summer Intern.  The IFAA is a non-profit organization comprised of agricultural enthusiasts dedicated to providing scholarships, financial awards and incentives for college-bound (4-H and FFA) youth seeking a post-secondary education in the area of agriculture.

Bre grew up on a farm outside of Prairie City, Iowa where her family raised show pigs and row crops.
