NAWG hires Washington state native as communications director

The National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) Chief Executive Officer, Chandler Goule, announced yesterday that Mariah Wollweber has been hired as the organization’s new Director of Communications and Partnerships, effective Monday, April 19, 2021. Wollweber is a fifth-generation wheat farmer from Washington state. Growing up in a farming family, she was able to see how policies and practices impacted the agricultural community. She wanted to be a voice for those involved in agriculture, so she became an active member in 4-H and FFA, learning how to communicate about ag-related topics. She began her career working in journalism and has spent the last five years in the communications and marketing industry.

“We are excited to have Mariah join our team,” Goule said. “With her unique background and first-hand farming experience, we are confident Mariah will be an asset to the organization.”

In addition to other organizational duties, Wollweber will be responsible for sending out press releases and will act as NAWG’s point of contact for all media inquiries.

“Being able to work with farmers around the nation is an honor. I am so excited to be a part of the National Association of Wheat Growers as their new Director of Communications and Partnerships.” said Mariah Wollweber.
