Class of 2019
From Harvard, Illinois

Daphne Austin grew up on a small family farm in Harvard, Illinois. Her background on the farm influenced her choice to major in Agricultural Education at the University of Illinois. “Growing up on a small farm raising swine and beef cattle and putting up hay sparked my interest in Agriculture,” she said. “I always enjoyed helping and teaching others so I’m pursuing agriculture education.” As a student, she enjoys learning about the different aspects of agriculture. Her advice for students is: “Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from trying new things. This is your adventure make the most out of it.”
