Morgan Doggett joined the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) on April 6 as a communications manager in the organization’s Washington, D.C., headquarters.
In this role, Doggett will be responsible for the development, implementation and maintenance of the Council’s publications, website, social media presence and other internal and external outreach, in cooperation with other members of the Council’s global staff.
“We are very excited to have Morgan come on board in this pivotal position,” said Bryan Jernigan, USGC director of communications. “Morgan’s previous experience has prepared her to step into this demanding role, and I am confident she will hit the ground running.”
Prior to the Council, Doggett served as the manager of communications at the National Propane Gas Association. There, she relaunched the association’s 80-year-old brand and led its media relations efforts, managed its website, wrote press releases and steered social media. Morgan is also an operations associate on her family’s farm in Illinois, a five-generation, tri-county row crop and beef cattle farm.
Doggett holds a bachelor’s degree in agriculture and consumer economics with a concentration in policy, international trade and development and a second bachelor’s degree in agriculture leadership education, both from the University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign.
