After making the transition to the Learfield News in Ag division, working as the digital content creator/coordinator, Anna Hastert got to see a different side of the farm broadcasting world.

NAFB Allied Industry Council Member Christine Tew credits 4-H as her gateway to agriculture, both as an industry and a future profession. Now the marketing and communications manager for Valent USA, Tew is excited to continue supporting 4-H through her induction as a new trustee on the board of directors for the Missouri 4-H Foundation Board.

Upon attending her first NAFB Conference in 2015, Corryn La Rue cemented her career as an agriculture reporter, now doing just that for the Ag Information Network. La Rue graduated from Utah State University with two Bachelors of Science degrees in agricultural communications and journalism with a broadcast emphasis.

NAFB Allied Industry Member Lori Hallowell recently received the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) 2022 Professional Development Award of Excellence for public relations.

In 2022, the NAFB Foundation awarded multiple $7,500 college scholarships and one $10,000 scholarship. Each recipient received an expense-paid trip to attend NAFB Convention as part of the award.
