The Lancaster County Ag Society welcomes Jennifer Rawlinson as its newest board member for a three-year term. Rawlinson is marketing and communication manager at Bison, Inc., and has served on several boards and committees. She is also involved in a number of community organizations such as Junior Achievement, Lincoln Literacy and Girl Scouts.
The Ag Society continues a tradition of long-serving board members with Tom Messick and Jim Swanson being re-elected to serve through 2020, with over 40 years of service between them.
The Ag Society thanks outgoing board member Jay Wilkinson for nearly 20 years of service to the board and is glad to have him planning to continue to lead the Livestock Barn at the Lancaster County Super Fair.
This election is administered annually before the Ag Society's annual meeting at the Lancaster County Fairgrounds known as the Lancaster Event Center by the Lancaster County Election Commissioner, Dave Shively, in the tradition of all Nebraska Ag Societies for over 140 years.
