Congratulations to Jenna Boote of Hull, Iowa, for her summer internship with the Midwest Dairy Association. Boote will work at the Ankeny, Iowa office for the industry relations team.
A senior public relations and religion major at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, Boote will use her skills to design and implement a student nutrition initiative encouraging schools to provide students with a variety of wholesome and nutritious foods like dairy products. She will also assist industry leaders in their efforts to extend the organization’s “People Behind the Product” initiative. Working closely with producers, Boote will record their stories and coordinate special events to help consumers learn more about their dairy farming neighbors.
“Growing up on a farm, I have seen firsthand the lifestyle of dedication and responsibility dairy producers represent. I am excited to be in a role where I can share my father’s story, and the stories of other dedicated farmers,” Boote says. The daughter of Kevin and Janet Boote, she has a long history of promotional work in the dairy industry and served as the Iowa State Dairy Princess in 2005. Boote’s internship began in early May.
