Growing up in northern Utah with farms all around him, Dean Winward enjoyed the outdoors and the hands-on nature of agriculture. After earning his bachelor’s and master’s degree in soil science, Winward began his teaching career at Fort Lewis College. Winward has now been at Southern Utah University for 29 years, teaching students about the agricultural field and how necessary it is to each one of us.
