GrowNextGen industry leader

Emilie Regula Hancock

Marketing & Outreach Manager at Ohio Soybean Council

Emilie assists with OSC’s marketing projects related to water quality, animal agriculture, biodiesel, and coordinates outreach to key industry partners.

What is the benefit of collaboration between industry and education?
Ohio citizens and consumers (including students and teachers) benefit from understanding food production in Ohio. The Ohio Soybean Council understands the value of investing in tomorrow’s citizens and workforce by providing high-quality, relevant curriculum and resources to Ohio teachers!

What value/assistance can you provide to teachers and classrooms as they connect with you?
I am happy to communicate with teachers and/or students about the value of Ohio’s soybean industry, address misconceptions about agriculture or answer questions. I welcome the chance to communicate with students using an online platform (Zoom, for example) or answer questions through email. My area of expertise is in policy and regulation.

Why should teachers connect with you through GrowNextGen?
GrowNextGen provides high-quality curriculum, e-learning, career videos and connections with industry leaders and trained teachers. It is a great place to start to learn about how modern agriculture connects to education.
