Agricultural communication alum Katy Mumaw ‘07 presented with TedxYoungstown in March on “Why the Corporate World gets Learning Wrong.”
She talks about a learning model that provides the ideal framework for a thriving corporate culture and it may sound familiar to many of our students and alumni.
As a student, Mumaw majored in agricultural communication and was active in Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow, serving as president for two years, Sigma Alpha Professional Sorority as well as editor of the AgriNaturalist in 2006. She also holds a master’s in agricultural leadership from Oklahoma State University.
Following her graduation from Ohio State in 2007, she worked for National FFA Organization for nine years as an educational specialist, senior content writer and online experience and senior content manager before returning to Ohio. Mumaw was a reporter with Farm and Dairy for two years and now works with Compco in Salem, Ohio where she has held positions as communications director, director of learning and development, director of engagement and now director of sales and marketing.
