Interim Education Director Steps In
December 12, 2016
Margaret Krome, Policy Program Director for Michael Fields Agricultural Institute for the past twenty plus years will take on new responsibilities as MFAI”s Interim Education Director. When Michael Fields received their 501C3 status some thirty-three years ago, their tax exempt status was based on the Institute’s role in education. Over the years, Michael Fields has focused on educating students, farmers and the consumer on the health benefits of eating locally produced organic fruits and vegetables. The position of Education Director has been vacant for a little over one year. The Board of Directors would like Ms. Krome to lead an initiative to examine the role education will play in the Institute’s programs in the future.
“I am honored and excited to help MFAI build on its long track record of creative, responsive educational programming. Education is a crucial part of our mission and our identity.” Margaret Krome, Interim Education Director
