My name is Donal Brader and I'm a Sophomore at the Institute of Applied Agriculture here at the University of Maryland. I'm currently majoring in Golf Course Management. Coming from Fredrick County, I have always been surrounded by farming. In fact, my family owns a small piece of land which my father grows vegetables and fruits on. I joined AGR to better myself not only for the workforce, but also as a man. Joining has been one of the best decisions that I have made so far in my life and highly encourage others to do the same.
