Wyatt Fraas’ first job was in agriculture. He spent summers bucking hay bales as the wagon he rode on swayed and creaked across the field, trying to pitch him, and the bales, to the ground.
Throughout the years, he has continued working to better rural America. Today, Wyatt maintains a strong connection with his agricultural roots as interim program director in the Farm & Community Program at the Center for Rural Affairs.
He’s held that position for four months, and has been assistant program director of the program for 15 years.
