Farm Press/Farm Progress is pleased to announce that Alaina Dismukes, a recent graduate of Mississippi State University, has joined Delta Farm Press as a staff writer.
“We are excited to welcome Alaina to the Farm Press editorial team,” said Ron Smith, Delta Farm Press editor. “Alaina is a talented writer and we look forward to putting those skills to good use to help us provide timely information to Delta Farm Press readers.”
Dismukes grew up on a tree farm owned by her grandfather, Charles Dismukes. “I have been surrounded with input from others in the (farming) profession, including my grandfather, my brother, and sister-in-law who are all foresters,” she said. “My best friend is a farmer.”
Dismukes recently worked as a student writer for the Agriculture and Natural Resources Marketing team at Mississippi State University while she completed her degree in English, maintaining a 3.85 grade point average.
"Farming is such an important industry,” she said. “I look forward to helping provide information to growers through my writing. As a new graduate from MSU, I feel blessed beyond measure for this opportunity to be working for Delta Farm Press, and to be able to learn and grow as a writer from such talented individuals."
Dismukes will work from Starkville.
