Lindi Kocher started as Indiana Farm Bureau’s ag education coordinator earlier this summer. In her new role, she
implements educational programs such as the Book of the Year and Agriculture in the Classroom initiatives. She aims to further promote agriculture’s story.
“Indiana Farm Bureau is known as the voice for a farmer,” said Kocher. “I have always enjoyed teaching and I have a passion for agricultural education. I truly feel we can raise awareness to continue to build the presence of Indiana agriculture.”
Kocher graduated with both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agriculture education from the University of Illinois. Her passion for agriculture led her to a position as an educational consultant for 10 years. Prior to Farm Bureau, Kocher was a high school agriculture teacher at Clinton Central in Clinton County.
Kocher and her husband, Scott, have two kids, Owen, 14, and Emily, 11. Kocher enjoys gardening, sewing, coaching basketball and being involved in her kids’ sports. She also is an avid St. Louis Cardinals and college basketball fan.
“I love the classroom, whether it is kindergarten or high school. My favorite part about my role is the opportunity to continue to help others recognize the importance of agriculture within our daily lives, and doing so in this environment means a lot to me,” said Kocher.To contact Kocher, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 317-692-7870.
