Jill Floyd - 2008 Golden Opportunity Scholar

Jill Floyd PictureCurrent activities
I am working for Monsanto in Soybean Variety Development as a Research Assistant in Stonington, IL.

Future activities
I plan on continuing to work for Monsanto while gaining more experience and responsibility. There are so many opportunities within the company so there is always an option to move around to different areas. Eventually, I may pursue a Masters degree in Crop Science or Plant Genetics.
Impact of GO program
The Golden Opportunity Scholar program really solidified in my mind that agriculture is the area I want to have a career in. The program helped me to realize how much of a difference I can make with fresh ideas. The possibilities in the sciences are endless and this excites me. I want to make a difference, not only at my site, but within the company and agricultural industry as a whole.
