At last Tuesday's meeting, Brandon Davis told us about Uraguay, the country he chose as the site of his Ambassadorial studies.
A 2008 graduate of Weslayan University with a bachelor's degree in political science and Spanish, Brandon was eager to conduct his master's degree program in Sustainable Rural Development in a Spanish-speaking country. He was fortunate that a professor in the capital city of Montevideo, who had previously studied at Iowa State, was willing to make arrangements for his studies. Uruguay has a similar land mass but twice the population of Nebraska. The coast of Uraguay provides for 80% of the population, leaving a thriving agricultural society inland.
