Telling the agricultural story is Nicole Patterson's job and passion as the publicity and event coordinator for the Student Federation for Agriculture. The newly formed student organization helps promote agriculture's story.

Patterson said the club's goal is to provide information to people who have not had any experience with agriculture. She says the group hopes to do that through club events, speakers, editorials and meetings with legislators.

Patterson grew up raising hogs and understands the importance of caring for animals and sharing that story with the public. She's served as FFA state vice-president and wouldn't trade the experience for anything.

Her dream job – promoting agriculture and working with producers.
