Most inspirational U of M alum: I am most inspired by 1970 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Norman Borlaug. Dr. Borlaug made it his mission to feed a hungry world. His revolutionary work developing high yield wheat varieties that were weather adaptive and disease resistant is largely responsible for what is referred to today as the "Green Revolution". His work makes me proud to work for the University of Minnesota!
