Tucker Launer

Class of 2020
From Modesto, Illinois

Tucker Launer chose to major in Agricultural Education because of his focus on education the next generation. "I have a deep passion for agriculture which comes from my roots of growing up and working on my family's fourth generation family farm," he said. "I love helping others reach new levels of knowledge, and I hope I can help future students realize their deep passion for agriculture as well."

Tucker's family farm operation produces corn, soybeans, wheat, and alfalfa, in addition to raising cattle, goats, chickens, and turkeys. He enjoys working on the farm, fishing, watching sports and being with family. Tucker's love for agriculture has continued to grow through on-campus organizations such as Ag Ed Club and the Collegiate Farm Bureau. He said these programs teach him and other students how to be better "Agvocators." His advice for students is: "Always keep an organized schedule. Deadlines are always able to sneak up on anybody, so make it easier on yourself and organize."
