Senator Dahms named a ‘Distinguished Alumni’
Senator Gary Dahms (R–Redwood Falls) was recently awarded the 2019 Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Minnesota’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS).
“I’m humbled and honored to receive the Distinguished Alumni Award, and I thank those who nominated me,” said Senator Dahms.
“I feel there are several things we must do to keep rural Minnesota strong and viable. We need to create a business environment that attracts new businesses and encourages research and development, job growth, and business expansion. Our students need education that is cutting edge and allows global economy success. We must also support today’s agriculture of innovation and diversification,” he said.
Senator Dahms was selected to receive the award based on his significant contributions to his legislative profession, his leadership position in the community, and his demonstrated commitment to building a greater CFANS community.
His nominators said, “Senator Dahms is a strong advocate for agricultural education and has been a longtime supporter of FFA.”
