MBAs Evoke Change
Troy Hadrick, a graduate of the checkoff’s Masters of Beef Advocacy (MBA) program, recently rallied fellow graduates to convince the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) to make changes to a traveling exhibit about water use. The exhibit, which is traveling the country for three years, includes a panel entitled “Beef: The Thirstiest Crop” and contains inaccurate and inflammatory statements about beef production. After seeing the exhibit on a trip to the Field Museum in Chicago, Troy posted an alert to the MBA Alumni Association Web site, and other grads joined him in contacting AMNH via e-mail, Facebook and Twitter. After continued efforts by the grads, AMNH finally agreed to change the exhibit before it moves to its next stop!
