With the start of the New Year, we officially welcomed a new team member, Loren Lindler, who will serve as a communication specialist.
Loren Lindler is a communication specialist for the center. Her main responsibilities are managing social media and writing for the blog. Lindler holds a bachelor’s degree in agricultural communication from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC). Through her experiences growing up in Lexington, South Carolina, Lindler gained a deep appreciation for rural communities and the agricultural industry. She recently served as a communication intern at the center before joining the team full time. Prior to joining the Rural Center, previous internships include working with the Sunbelt Ag Expo, Georgia FFA Association, Georgia FFA Foundation, Georgia Forestry Association, ABAC, and, most recently, DTN/Progressive Farmer. She has focused her efforts on marketing, communications, social media, and writing.
