Agrimarketing : April 2009
Former Student NAMAPresidentWins Rhodes Scholarship Vincent M. Hofer of Franklin, Kan., is one of 32 national Rhodes Scholarship winners. Hofer is Kansas State University’s eighth Rhodes winner since 1986. Hofer, a 2008graduate in agribusiness, works for U.S. Senator Sam Brownback in Washington, D.C., as a legislative correspondent. “The Rhodes will give Vincent the chance to pursue Latin American studies and Development Studies at Oxford University,” said James Hohenbary, assistant dean for nationally competitive scholar- ships. “Having gotten to know Vincent through the application process, I am convinced that he will make excellent use of this opportunity. Not only is he an outstanding student and leader, he has a great work ethic, intense intellectual curiosity and a deep concern for the welfare of others. I am thrilled to see him recognized in this way.” After completing graduate studies, Hofer plans to pursue a career in international development. At K-State, Hofer received the Anderson Award for Outstanding Leadership, and as chapter president, he was instrumental in leading the K-State National Agri- Marketing Association team to back-to-back wins in national competition.
