Mariah Schmitt will be responsible for public relations, grant writing, publications and other responsibilities pertaining to the Northeast Iowa Dairy Foundation's everyday operations. She will also be working closely with the foundation’s board of directors to promote the dairy industry.
"Growing up on my family's dairy farm, I developed a passion for the dairy community at a young age," Schmitt said in a press release. "I am excited to join the Dairy Foundation and share my passion with dairy farmers and students to help make the dairy industry stronger for future generations."
Schmitt has also interned at several dairy organizations, including Midwest Dairy Association and Osborn Barr Communications.
