Hannah is from Clinton County and is a 2020 graduate of Wilmington High School. During high school, she was involved in 4-H along with the Junior Fair Board. Throughout her time in 4-H, she held various leadership positions and was selected as the 2020 Statewide Ohio 4-H Family Life and Child Development Achievement Award Winner.

Some of her responsibilities as an intern will include working on this year’s membership campaign, helping to educate members and the public on agriculture, and helping the county office to organize and implement various activities and events.

“I am excited to start this internship with Farm Bureau and see the ins and outs of the organization and being able to build on communication skills. I am looking forward to helping with the membership season and meeting all of the people involved in this organization,” she said.

Welcome, Hannah!

Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

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.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
