Laura is a special education paraprofessional at Pine Bluffs High School. She also is the head junior high track coach and an assistant high school basketball coach. Todd and Laura have four children; Taylen, Wyatt, Maddie and Sydnie.
The Fornstroms have been involved in Farm Bureau since they were married in 1997; Todd began Farm Bureau involvement prior to that during college. Both have served as county president, as members of the WyFB Young Farmer & Rancher Committee and in numerous committee chair positions as well. Todd has served as WyFB Vice President and in 2016 was elected WyFB President.
“Being a part of this grassroots federation to make a difference for Wyoming’s farmers and ranchers is an incredible honor,” Todd Fornstrom stated.
Whether it be a sporting event, a Farm Bureau meeting, farming or school board meeting, it is all about family to the Fornstroms. Being involved with Farm Bureau for them is about getting back to the basic values of life and being a part of the solution.
