20 Oct ND Soybean Council Hires Outreach and Education Coordinator
“It’s exciting to add a new role to our staff as programs expand and demand for soybeans and checkoff funded programing grows across the state,” says NDSC Executive Director Stephanie Sinner. “We’re thrilled for the breadth of experience Shireen brings to the team and we’re delighted to have her as part of our office serving North Dakota soybean farmers.”
Alemadi joins NDSC with extensive experience in managing and running programs, events, and activities to strengthen connections and raise awareness. Alemadi’s most recent role was Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) manager at the North Dakota Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (ND EPSCoR) where she implemented STEM education programs. Her career also includes a biosciences faculty position and an assistant director of community outreach and engagement position at Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM). She has professional experience with teaching and engaging with college and K-12 students. In 2016, Alemadi was part of United Way of Cass-Clay 35 Under 35 Women’s Leadership Program and was also a Fargo Moorhead YWCA Women of the Year nominee. Alemadi has a Bachelor of Arts degree in biology from MSUM and a Master of Science degree in biology from University of Central Florida.
“I am honored to be in this new role the North Dakota Soybean Council created,” says Alemadi. “It will provide new and exciting opportunities to engage with soybean growers across the state.”
North Dakota soybean farmers across the state are represented on the North Dakota Soybean Council Board, which oversees a grass roots promotion, research and marketing program funded by soybean checkoff dollars. The Council’s mission is to innovate to expand partnerships, markets, and opportunities for the success of North Dakota soybean growers.
