Colglazier travels to Germany for farm exchange PDF Print E-mail
Written by Isaac Kreider   

Agriculture is a dominant aspect of Colorado’s economy as well as a fundamental part of the global economy.

Nick Colglazier was recently selected as a McCloy Fellowship Program representative and traveled to Germany to meet and work with members of the German Farmers’ Association.

“Being able to travel Germany for three weeks to learn about agriculture was an experience of a lifetime,” Colglazier said.

Colglazier is a 1999 Holyoke High School graduate and is currently the Colorado Farm Bureau’s director of public policy for state affairs.

The McCloy Fellowship Program was established in 1976 by John McCloy, one of the first ambassadors to Germany after World War II. The program is a partnership between the American and German Farm Bureaus and gives young professionals an opportunity to broaden their professional experience and establish working relationships with their transatlantic counterparts. The United States and Germany alternate sending representatives overseas each year.
