Trey Forsyth is dedicated to making a global difference in agriculture. From his participation in the Land O’ Lakes, Inc., Global Food Challenge and extensive involvement in FFA to his leadership in the ISU College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Student Alumni Leadership Council, Trey has truly made a mark on ISU and his chosen profession.
In 2016, Trey traveled to Tucson, Ariz., to present his research findings at a national conference on international trade. He has parlayed his experience with the Land O’ Lakes Global Food challenge – which allowed him to travel to Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, Washington, D.C., and Indiana researching food security – into a government relations internship and full-time job offer from the company to work in sustainability.
Among the campus and community organizations that have benefitted from Trey’s talent and leadership are the Agricultural Business Club, the Agricultural Business Peer Mentor Program, the Agricultural Entrepreneurship Initiative, Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity, ISU Bacon Expo, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences’ Dean’s Student Advisory Council, the Student Alumni Leadership Council’s Homecoming Central and Senior Class Council committees, ISU Ambassadors, the National FFA Organization, Story County GOP Central Committee, and Relay for Life.
