Where Are They Now: Stacie Seger


“If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?”

-T.S. Eliot


While graduation in May of 2015 feels like both yesterday and 5 years ago for agricultural communication major Stacie Seger, this quote by poet T.S. Eliot perfectly sums up her first year post-college. While at Ohio State, Stacie was energetically involved in a variety of organizations. Serving as president for the Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow Club in 2014, Stacie was also active in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Student Council, the Ohio State Board of Trustees as an Undergraduate Trustee, the SPHINX Senior Class Honorary, and Saddle and Sirloin Club.

Upon graduation, Stacie began working for Ohio Corn & Wheat as their communication manager, overseeing all communication and media relations for their three organizations: Ohio Corn Checkoff, Ohio Small Grains Checkoff, and Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association. As the communication manager, Stacie is thankful for all of the communication skills that her degree in agricultural communication at Ohio State exposed her to. She utilizes these skills at Ohio Corn & Wheat by managing the social media accounts, and writing their newsletters as well as news releases. She also serves as the OCW photographer and videographer. Beyond that, Stacie manages their consumer brand, builds and maintains relationships with media outlets, and represents their organization at national meetings and events.

As advice to prospective or current students in the Department of Agricultural Communication, Education, and Leadership, Stacie encourages gaining exposure to as many different facets of communications, education, leadership, and agriculture as possible.
“The diversity in experiences will help you develop a wide variety of skills and it will help you figure out your true passions,” vouches Stacie. She also says that the exposure to all of those things will aide in developing a diverse network of relationships. She believes that building and strengthening relationships should be a key goal of college. Her advice can be most perfectly summed up with the sentiment-

“It’s a small world out there, and it is so important to have a strong Rolodex.”
