Meet our new Farm Outreach Worker, Reneesha R. Auboug. She replaces David Price who resigned from our program as of June 2013. Auboug is a 1998 cum laude graduate of Lincoln University. She majored in agriculture; her minor was business. At LU, she found ways to gain hands-on experience. As a work-study student, she took care of the research greenhouse on campus. Auboug had three summer internships. One was with the Talladega National Forest in Alabama; there, she worked as a forestry technician. The second was at the University of Missouri's Bradford Research Farm; she was a corn research technician. The third was with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an environmental specialist. She took part in two study abroad programs; one was in Africa and the other, in Central America. After she graduated, Auboug took a job with the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS); she was a soil conservation aide and camp counselor. She also lived and worked on a farm in the country of Mexico. She now volunteers at an organic farm in Ferguson, Missouri. Auboug speaks Spanish, Haitian Creole and French. She and her husband Yves are the proud parents of a six-year-old girl. Auboug is excited to meet and work with you.
