Outgoing 'Alice' Tapped as Coordinator of Ag in the Classroom
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/20/2016
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau's Agriculture in the Classroom program has a new coordinator. Teyanna Loether of Verona has been chosen to succeed Gretchen Kamps, who served in the capacity for a short time after Wendy Kannel was promoted as the
organization's leadership development director in 2015.
Loether is currently serving as Wisconsin's 68th Alice in Dairyland until early June. As part of her new role, she will provide Wisconsin teachers, volunteers and students with resources about how food travels from the farm to the fork; and will also serve as the
director of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation.
"Agriculture literacy is critical to teaching our next generation about where our food comes from," Loether said, "It is for that reason that I am thrilled to be joining the Wisconsin Farm Bureau team."
A native of Sauk City, Loether grew up on a dairy farm and graduated last year from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she received both a bachelor and master's degree in animal science. During graduate school, she worked as a teaching assistant
and tutor and received a Delta certificate in research, teaching and learning.
