Washington, D.C. (October 6, 2022) — This fall, the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) is welcoming Texas A&M University student, Natalie Charlson, as our policy intern and North Carolina State University student, Savanah Webb, as our communication intern.

Natalie Charlson is currently majoring in Recreations, Parks & Tourism Science, and is from Baytown, Texas. Natalie is a member of Memorial Student Center Freshman Leadership International which is a group that focuses on bringing cultural diversity to Texas A&M’s campus. Natalie has also led a Service-Learning Program that ultimately took her to Costa Rice where she planned, implemented, and oversaw an annual service program. “I am excited to expand my knowledge of the wheat industry and I am thankful to NAWG for the opportunity to learn more about the agriculture community,” said Natalie Charlson.

Savanah Webb is currently majoring in Agriculture Business Management and is from Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Savanah is a member of Young Farmers & Ranchers, a sister of a professional agriculture sorority, Sigma Alpha, and a College of Agriculture and Life Sciences ambassador for North Carolina State University. Savanah has held various internships in the research and field agronomy portions of the agriculture industry. “Having the opportunity to see the inner workings of a commodity group like NAWG has already given me so much insight into how expansive and complex the agriculture industry is,” said Savanah Webb.

“We are thankful to have Natalie and Savanah join our NAWG team this fall,” NAWG CEO, Chandler Goule shares. “These internship opportunities are invaluable to helping shape our future farm leaders. Natalie and Savanah will be great assets to NAWG as we approach our busy meeting season this fall and prepare for the reauthorization of the 2023 Farm Bill.”
