Two Local Dairy Farmers Complete PDPW's Cornerstone Dairy Academy

Friday, March 17th, 2023 -- 9:01 AM

(Wisconsin Ag Connection) Twenty-one dairy farmers and industry professionals received recognition for completing all three pillars of leadership training in PDPW’s Cornerstone Dairy Academy®.

According to the Wisconsin Ag Connection, the application-based professional-development program is designed to build the skills of dairy producers and industry professionals who want to expand their skills to lead with purpose, character and integrity. Graduates were recognized on the second day of the March 14-15 program at the Kalahari Resorts & Convention Center, Wisconsin Dells.

“We are excited to have so many graduates of the Cornerstone Dairy Academy this year, and appreciate the dedication and commitment of all the graduates for investing in their development for the future of their businesses and the entire industry,” said Cassandra Strupp, PDPW program manager. “The growing momentum of the Cornerstone Dairy Academy program is resulting in stronger leaders, communicators and professionals across the dairy community.”

Hailing from Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Vermont, the Cornerstone Dairy Academy graduates have completed the Influential, Visionary and Servant Leadership pillars. Some local graduates include Scott Pilgrim of Augusta and Rebecca Sanders of Owen.

Presented by PDPW, the professional-development program focuses on enhancing the skills of communication, visionary thinking, ethical decision-making, servant-oriented leadership and professional etiquette.

The presenters also equip attendees with tools to work through workplace challenges caused by generational differences and varying styles of emotional intelligence. The 2023 Cornerstone Dairy Academy is held in conjunction with the PDPW Business Conference.

Cornerstone is funded in part by a grant from the Professional Dairy Producers Foundation.
