by | Jun 26, 2020

Amy McEvoy, head of Earned Media at Rhea + Kaiser, was recently announced as a fellow for the Illinois Agricultural Leadership Foundation (IALF) Class of 2022. McEvoy was selected to be part of the 20th class following a competitive application and interview process.

Beginning in August 2020, McEvoy will participate in 15 seminars over 19 months to build the skills, knowledge and character to confront the most urgent and pressing issues of global and local food security and sustainability. The program is designed to equip fellows with the skillset and experiences necessary to become policy and decision makers for the agricultural industry.

Fellows in the Class of 2022 represent a broad spectrum of food and agricultural interests and bring diverse agricultural experiences, from farming to multi-national agricultural business. For the first time in the history of the leadership program, the class will have more women than men; McEvoy is one of 14 women selected to be part of the 20th class.

“We are proud of Amy for being selected to join a rich roster of Illinois Agricultural Leadership classmates,” said Stephanie Heusuk, Chief Executive Officer at Rhea + Kaiser. “As an agency, we look forward to supporting her as she gains the knowledge and skills to become a global leader in agriculture.”
