    Ben Wagner #1001

         I’m Benjamin John Wagner from Primghar, Iowa. I graduated with an Agronomy major and I have accepted a Sales Agronomy position with Cooperative Farmers Elevator (CFE) in Rock Valley Iowa.

         I joined Alpha Gamma Rho my first semester of my freshman year. Since then, I have gained many friendships and had many great experiences with my brothers. From just hanging out around the house to traveling down to Leadership Convention to one of the many events going on with the fraternity, there always seems to be something going on. I will truly miss it and everything it has done for me.


    Connor Hoff # 1027

         I’m Connor Hoff, Senior, form Madison South Dakota.  I am leaving South Daktoa State University with a degree in Ag Sciences and am returning home to become a partner in my family farm.

         I joined Alpha Gamma Rho my first semester here at SDSU, and have never looked back.  I truthfully believe that I would not be the same man I am today, if not for Alpha Gamma Rho.  Through AGR I have gained many life long friendships, and have been involved in numerous activities. I look forward to the future, but will truly miss my home for the last 4 years.  


    Jon Hellinga #1032

         I’m Jonathon Hellina from Harris, Iowa and I graduated with a major in Agronomy. Earlier this fall I accepted a job with Pioneer as a Sales Associate and I already began working for Marnach Seed and Ag Sales, an agency out of Ashton, IA. The plan is for me to take over the agency next summer and have the current rep step down into the associate position.

         AGR has allowed me to meet so many people, not only the brothers in the house, but also through internships and other parts of life. AGR has helped me make some of the best friends that will continue to be a part of my life. No matter what the future brings, I am glad I made Alpha Gamma Rho a part of my journey.


    Tyler Kolb #1033

         My name is Tyler Kolb from Aberdeen, SD. I graduated from SDSU with Agronomy and Ag Business majors and Business and Economics minors. I will be selling Golden Harvest and NK seeds with Next Generation Genetics in Aberdeen, SD. Alpha Gamma Rho has given me the opportunity to meet some incredible people, make some lifelong friends, and has molded me into the person I have become.
