Audubon native Logan Bauer is the son of Michael and Jennifer Bauer. Logan was part of the class of 2014 and was heavily involved in FFA and basketball. When asked what Audubon meant to him, he said “When I think of Audubon, I think of a small town feeling with a really big presence.”
While in high school, FFA was a big part of Logan’s life and he held a couple of offices within the Audubon FFA chapter. Bauer was able to keep doing FFA during his senior year of high school and freshmen year at DMACC as the SouthWest Vice President. He traveled around the state promoting agriculture education.
Bauer’s journey at DMACC included getting his associates degree in Agriculture Business and Management. Logan also competed in intramural sports like football and basketball. “DMACC was perfect for me with the flexibility and getting a college degree under my belt.”
Logan wanted to continue his education to gain more experience and challenge himself. “I want to know different things so I can understand what it’s like to be in other people’s shoes.” During his time at Iowa State, Bauer created a business to get a scholarship while in school. Bauer got his Bachelors degree in Agriculture Science and Studies.
Logan has never forgot what his community has done for him and could potentially return in the future. “I know I can always come back home because of the good people and the big hearts.”
Logan’s dream careers are either to get back to the family farm in Audubon or to become an agriculture teacher in high school or a professor in a two year college. Logan added “Before I potentially come back to Audubon to the farm, I want to get as much experience as I can.”
Logan is now living in Tiffin – a growing community just west of Iowa City – with his wife Elizabeth Bauer. Elizabeth is from Wells, Minnesota and met Logan during college. Elizabeth is pursuing high management positions with the Target company. Logan works for a Right of Way company called JCG Land Services based out of Nevada, Iowa.
Logan still loves coming back to Audubon and enjoying the community. He included “I really enjoy coming back to watch my brothers Collin and Carson compete in their sports.”
