My name is Samantha Straley and I am the new executive coordinator for PPA. I just graduated from the University of Wisconsin River Falls where I received a degree in agriculture marketing communications with a minor in animal science. At school I was very active in many agricultural clubs and organizations; I was also on the livestock and meat evaluation team. Now that I am done with college I am a active 4-H leader, serve on the Langlade County Livestock Committee, and am the coach for the Langlade County Livestock Quizbowl team. Growing up and still to this day my family and I show beef females around Wisconsin and the country. Beef may be my specialty but I have a heart for the dairy industry and agriculture as a whole. Being the Executive Coordinator for PPA excites me as I get to advocate, educate, and promote my passion, agriculture! I looking forward to working with all of PPA's partners and members. If you ever have questions and or a new idea please feel free to share them with me.
