ACJ Alum Uses Skills to Blog for Agriculture

Story by Debbie Lyons-Blythe, ’88 (ACJ)

I’m a cattle rancher, a mom, a wife and a journalist. Not a journalist in a traditional sense; I’m a blogger.  Bloggers are committed to connecting with readers in a direct, open and casual way—nearly the total opposite of traditional media. My blog is www.KidsCowsandGrass.com,and I blog about my passions: my family, my ranch and the Kansas Flint Hills.

Story by Paige Druffel, senior (ACJ)

It was cool to hear their stories about K-State and why they loved the College of Ag so much. When I enrolled as a student, I knew that I wanted to be an ambassador, so that I too could share my K-State story.

A Week in the Nation’s Capital

This year for spring break, I visited Washington, D.C., with my dad, Joe Newland, and Kansas Farm Bureau. My dad serves on the KFB Board of Directors for the third district. The trip focused on meeting with our state legislators; however, we did take time to do a little sightseeing.
