Maryland Agriculture Council Leadership Elected
Karen Engel of Keymar was elected president of the Maryland Agriculture Council Board of Directors during its recent board meeting. Having served as vice president during the past year, she replaces outgoing leader, Michael Harrison Jr. of Woodbine.
Engel has been a member of the Council’s board since 2007, serving on numerous committees and playing an integral part in the group’s annual Taste of Maryland Agriculture. A graduate of the Institute for Applied Agriculture at the University of Maryland, she works with Triple Crown Nutrition.
“Agriculture is Maryland’s number one industry, but we have many challenges facing our farmers and the Maryland Agriculture Council is a crucial piece for a unified voice,” Engel said. “It is imperative that we share agriculture’s story with our elected officials as well as our citizens. I am excited to be a part of a great team working diligently to continue our mission.
“We are expecting many exciting opportunities this year,” she said. “The Taste of Maryland Agriculture 2023 is going to be grand, and I certainly hope many join us and help spread the great work of agriculture. We are ‘Expecting the Best!’”
MD Ag Council Educational Grant Fund
The Council has established an account within the Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation for tax-deductible contributions to support the Maryland Agriculture Council Educational Grants program. We receive a large number of exceptional applications for new outreach programs and would like to assist those grassroots efforts. Please consider giving!
