Jacob Handsaker award

Joe Colletti, senior associate dean of the ISU College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (left), recently presented Jacob Handsaker with the 2020 Emerging Iowa Leader Award. Handsaker is a farmer and co-owner of Hands On Excavating.

The description of the Emerging Iowa Leader Award leaves little wonder why Jacob Handsaker received it.

The Iowa State University alumni award honors agriculture and life science graduates “who have taken on significant leadership roles early in their careers in bettering agriculture and life sciences in Iowa through communications, education, relationship-building, engagement, and are providing outstanding alumni service. Honorees must be age 40 or younger at the time of nomination, live or work in Iowa, and demonstrate high potential for future professional growth.”
