Kannel named state Farm Bureau's Ag in the Classroom coordinator

April 7, 2014 | 0 comments


Wendy Kannel of Elmwood has been named the Wisconsin Farm Bureau's Agriculture in the Classroom coordinator and director of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation.

Since joining the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation in 2010, Kannel has worked as a district coordinator for WFBF's District 9 in northwest Wisconsin.

In her new role, Kannel will oversee the Ag in the Classroom program, which provides Wisconsin teachers, volunteers and students with tools about how food travels from the farm to the fork. She will work with local Ag in the Classroom coordinators in 61 Wisconsin counties.

Kannel will also lead the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation which provides financial support to Ag in the Classroom, Farm Bureau's Young Farmer and Agriculturist Program, Women's Program for Education and Leadership, leadership Institute course, collegiate Farm Bureaus, FFA and 4-H.

"Wendy has a strong background in education, agriculture and volunteer training. Her excellent communication and networking skills make her a great choice to lead Ag in the Classroom and oversee our Foundation's activities," said Jim Holte, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation president and Elk Mound native.

Kannel, an agricultural education major from UW-River Falls, grew up on a dairy farm near Spring Valley in Pierce County. She worked as an agri-science teacher and FFA advisor for the Mishicot School District and adjunct instructor at Lakeshore Technical College in Cleveland.

"I'm excited to be continuing my work with Farm Bureau, and expanding my outreach with our state's volunteer leaders, teachers and youth," Kannel said. "With less than two percent of our society directly involved in production agriculture, it's critical we create and maintain relevant agricultural resources for teachers."

The search for Kannel's replacement to develop programs and coordinate membership efforts for Farm Bureau members is underway in District 9, which includes the counties of Barron, Chippewa, Dunn, Pierce, Polk, Rusk, Sawyer, St. Croix, as well as the Superior Shores Farm Bureau which covers Ashland, Bayfield, Douglas and Iron counties.
