ISU’s chapter of the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) was recognized as the Outstanding Student NAMA Chapter during the spring semester. Students competed against 35 chapters in the U.S. and Canada for the honor.

NAMA is the nation’s largest association for professionals in marketing and agribusiness. The award is based on chapter activities over the academic year. ISU’s chapter conducted an agriculture career fair, hosted a panel of human resource experts, organized a bowling tournament that brought in nearly 300 pounds of canned goods for a local food pantry, and raised funds to support a local horse rescue stable.

ISU’s chapter has more than 60 student members and is advised by Department of Agriculture Professors Aslihan Spaulding and Rick Whitacre.
