Rachel’s Next Chapter

Rachel Bauler has been the student administrative assistant of finance and membership since early 2022 and will be leaving CAST this month. Her future plans are to student teach Agriculture Education this spring at New Hampton High School, in New Hampton, Iowa. Following graduation from Iowa State University in May Rachel plans to teach in an Agricultural Education classroom close to home and help on her family’s farm.

A couple of her favorite memories from CAST have been all the funny moments in the office and attending the BCCA presentation in Des Moines. Rachel’s advice to future students working with CAST is to truly make it what you want. There are a lot of aspects of the agricultural industry that CAST interacts with and supports, which means there’s great opportunity for growth.

Below are tasks that Rachel completed during her time with CAST:

·         Website audit

·         Clean-up data base and contact list

·         BCCA Presentation

·         Annual Meeting Preparation

·         Incorporated QR codes into CAST displays and promotions

·         Association Society Members Officer Updates

·         End of Year Mailing

·         CAST Resource Guide update
