A Third Option: The Importance of Rural Students
Today's rural students are presented with two options: stay in their small towns forever, or leave and never go back. This talk is about showing students a third option. I grew up in small town Iowa and left at 16 to travel and study and explore. It wasn't until I left that I realized the importance of my rural upbringing. I had experiences and opinions that were important in informing policy and advocating for rural America. In this talk I will share personal stories, failings, and epiphanies in an attempt to show why the world needs rural students.
