The Future of SAF: New Column in The Forestry Source
January 7, 2019
This year, we are launching a new column in The Forestry Source
— The Future of SAF. This column will feature up-and-coming student members who will continue SAF’s legacy into the next 100 years. The idea for this column is the brainchild of Susan Stout, and we extend our hearty thanks to Susan and Jasmine Brown for their assistance in identifying students to feature and for coordinating the writing of these columns.
For our inaugural column, we are featuring Brown, a master’s student at Oregon State University (OSU). She joined SAF in 2013 while attending Alabama A&M University and has quickly taken advantage of the available leadership opportunities. Brown is a member of the SAF Diversity and Inclusion Working Group and is a part of the 2018 cohort of the SAF Diversity Scholars Program. She serves as the membership chair for the Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Sciences (MANRRS) chapter at Oregon State University. In her own words, Brown shares why she decided to enter the forestry profession and why she’s excited for the future.
