Have you ever wondered what it is like to meet the person in charge of all of agriculture in the United States? I have, and I was able to meet the man. Tom Vilsack is the 32nd Secretary of Agriculture, and this is his second stint in the position. I had the opportunity, along with other interns, to meet him at the USDA headquarters. He came up to us, asked someone where they were from, and complimented their home state. Secretary Vilsack had a great sense of humor, even cracking jokes about football. This opportunity was once in a lifetime, and meeting the Secretary of Agriculture is something I will remember for the rest of my life.
