Currently a member of Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow at Connors State, she’s passionate about educating the public about agriculture. “It’s important to know where your meat comes from. If the public doesn’t understand agriculture, they won’t support it. They’ll be reluctant to spend the extra few dollars on quality meat and vegetables.” Her dream job? “I want to come back to the Hudson Valley and do agriculture education for the Dutchess County Fairgrounds.”
Claire graduated from Roosevelt High School in Hyde Park where she was president of the student body and on the crew team.
