Farm Credit Mid-America, an agricultural lending cooperative serving farmers, rural residents and agribusinesses throughout Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, is pleased to announce the appointment of Stephanie Hopper to its Board of Directors.
Earlier this year, Board Member Tony Wolfe was elected to the AgriBank Board of Directors, which required him to step down from his position on Farm Credit Mid America’s Board of Directors. The Board of Directors selected Hopper from Macy, Indiana, to fill the vacant seat for the remainder of the term.
Hopper has deep roots in agriculture on her family farm that spans 2,200 acres in north central Indiana raising corn, soybeans, wheat and hay. In addition, the farm also runs a wean-to-finish swine operation, cow/calf operation and sells farm-to-freezer beef. Hopper is the past Treasurer of the Miami County Farm Bureau Young Farmers. She is currently a Miami County 4-H volunteer, a board member for the non-profit CC’s Closet and a member of Cornerstone Fellowship Church. Hopper received an Associate’s Degree in Agricultural Economics from Purdue University and Bachelor of Science in Business from Indiana Wesleyan University.
“We’re thrilled to have Stephanie join our Board of Directors,” said Bill Johnson, President and CEO of Farm Credit Mid-America. “She is truly passionate about helping young and beginning farmers and believes that the best thing for the future of agriculture is for the older and younger generations to work alongside each other. Her vision and dedication to bringing that thinking to life will be a great asset to the Board and to our customers.”
