Food Science Envoys are students who represent the department’s mission and values. These students are the first to ask, “How can I help?”, they are the ones that can be found talking to high schools students about food science, and they are the ones that meet with our departmental visitors first. During the fall semester their primary focus has been on recruiting. Envoys traveled around Tennessee attending college fairs and engaging with teachers and students alike.
Having the Envoy program allows students to take on leadership roles within the department and network with industry leaders. We are always looking to add to our Envoy team. The only requirements are a passion for food science and people, flexibility (since plans don’t always go as planned), and an outgoing personality. Please contact Jessica Black (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
