Graduate Becomes Ag Policy Adviser

Wayne Stoskopf

One agribusiness graduate is moving up the ranks as a Congressional staff member.

Wayne Stoskopf, a May 2010 graduate in agribusiness, formerly of Hoisington, served as an intern in summer 2009 for Jerry Moran, then the state’s 1st District congressman. During Moran’s campaign for the U.S. Senate in 2010, Stoskopf was a field director in central Kansas. He has since transitioned into a new role as a staff assistant for Rep. Lynn Jenkins, who represents Kansas’ 2nd District. In addition to constituent services, Stoskopf advises Jenkins on agricultural policy. This role is especially important given that Jenkins is a member of the House trade subcommittee.

“It allows her to be a strong advocate for Kansas agriculture,” Stoskopf said. “I’m excited about continuing to assist her as she works to open more trade markets for agriculture producers. As a K-State College of Agriculture graduate, this is a perfect fit.”

He credits leadership experiences at K-State as good preparation for working in Washington, D.C. Stoskopf served as student body vice president in 2009-2010. He also was a member of Blue Key, the senior leadership honorary, and other student organizations.
