Rachel Schrage became the newest member of the IFB public relations team on Jan. 27.
Schrage, a graduate of Indiana University’s school of journalism, is the team’s communications assistant. A new position at Indiana Farm Bureau, the role of communications assistant combines administrative duties with writing, editing and photography.
“I will work with the public relations team in many different capacities – from sending displays to county Farm Bureaus for use at fair time to writing copy for The Hoosier Farmer,” Schrage said.
A native of Indianapolis, Schrage graduated from IU-Bloomington in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and Italian and a minor in French. Prior to Farm Bureau, she worked as an event planner at Dallara IndyCar factory and interned with the National FFA.
Her hobbies include traveling, watching Formula One and IndyCar racing, cooking and eating.
“My favorite activities are any that combine two or more of the above,” she said.
“Hopefully my work will be helpful in educating members, and the general public, about Indiana agriculture and the work of the Indiana Farm Bureau,” she added.
