Headshot of LauraLaura Kleckner is a junior from Alachua, Florida studying natural resource conservation with a minor in science education. Through this Fellowship, Kleckner is interested in learning more about working with students in places that are not typical or traditional classrooms. In her professional life, she hopes to pursue a graduate degree and work to bridge the gaps in agricultural research in the U.S. and abroad. In her free time, she enjoys building with Legos and being in nature.

ā€œIā€™m excited to spend more time working with students in a classroom and for the spring break field experience.ā€
