Marshall2Marshall Dolch

Marshall is one of four siblings who grew up on his family's farm in Villisca, Iowa, where they raise approximately 160 head of Angus beef cattle in addition to 600 acres of corn and soybeans. He is currently a junior at Iowa State University studying Agricultural Communications and bleeds cardinal and gold right down to his very bone. Go Cyclones! Marshall owes a great deal of his passion for food sourcing to the National FFA Organization where he was blessed with the opportunity to serve the Iowa FFA Association as a state officer for the 2012-2013 year. In his free time, Marshall is an avid sports fanatic and whitetail deer hunting enthusiast.


MollieMollie Dykes

Mollie grew up raising and showing hogs in Hot Springs, Arkansas, so it only made sense for her to attend the University of Arkansas and become a Razorback. She recently earned a degree in Agricultural Communications with a minor in Agricultural Education. Mollie served as the 2009-2010 Arkansas FFA Vice President and was a National Collegiate Agriculture Ambassador for two consecutive years. Also, while attending the University of Arkansas, she interned with the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation in their public relations department and was able to help farmers tell their stories.


TrayTray Heard

Dallas native Tray grew up traveling to his families' cattle ranch located in the Texas hill country every opportunity he had time off from school. A recent Agricultural Communications and Journalism graduate from Texas A&M University, he pursued career opportunities in Austin, allowing him to take over the day-to-day duties on the cow-calf operation his family has maintained for nearly 50 years. Working to share his passions with others, he traveled to Namibia, Africa in 2012 to work with non-profit organizations, university systems and government agencies all striving to show the importance of agriculture and nature in our modern world.
