Warren, Minnesota high school student Jessica Olson received a scholarship from BASF during Commodity Classic. Olson’s entrepreneurial spirit is obvious. “My parents are farmers and when I was younger, they wanted to teach me how to grow my own food. I started with vegetable gardening and got into asparagus farming. I’m also working with my dad on farm and renting acres for farming.” Olson will attend the University of Minnesota-Crookston, studying agriculture. Ultimately, Olson wants a career in farming. “I hope to come back to the family farm and take over the farm with Dad.”
