Megan Schwendeman

This year’s Crawford, Marion, Morrow and Richland County Farm Bureau summer intern is Megan Schwendeman. Megan is an upcoming junior at Wilmington College double majoring in agricultural communications and political science with a specialization in food policy and agricultural advocacy on a pre-law track. On campus, she is involved with Collegiate Farm Bureau, Delta Tau Alpha Agriculture Honor Society, Amnesty International, Delight Ministries, the WC Honor Program and is a member of the Sigma Alpha Sorority.

Megan is originally from Ashland County and is a 2021 graduate of Hillsdale High School. During her high school career, she was heavily involved in 4-H and FFA, where she competed on both the state and national levels. She served on both the Ashland County Junior Fair Board and the Royalty Court as princess and then queen. At the fair she showed breeding and market lambs, as well as goats and a variety of still projects. 

As a Farm Bureau Active member, she received the 2021 and 2022 Ashland County Farm Bureau Scholarships. She attended the YAP Winter Leadership Conference this year and participated in Ohio’s Collegiate Discussion Meet. In Collegiate Farm Bureau at Wilmington College, she is currently serving as the public relations officer. She is excited to promote Farm Bureau membership at her college, so that students are more likely to stay involved after graduation. 

Some of her responsibilities this summer will include promoting membership, aiding in the coordination of events, and helping to inform the public on agriculture-related topics.

“I am excited to be a part of the organization and eager to meet members. I’m also very excited for the opportunity to plan and serve at local events and to connect with individuals and communities this summer!” she said.

Welcome, Megan!

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.
