Congratulations to CLA third year psychology student Troy Yamaguchi, who has been recently selected as a 2017 Cargill Global Scholar. The Cargill Global Scholar Program offers scholarship and leadership training to students who study in a field relevant to Cargill's world of food, agriculture and risk management, demonstrating exemplary academic achievement and leadership potential.
In June, Yamaguchi will join nine other scholars selected for the program's fifth cohort in the U.S. for a three-day leadership development seminar, where he'll receive training in a variety of business and leadership skills, tour Cargill's Food Innovation Center, and get to meet the Cargill business leaders who will serve as his mentor for the next year.
