Oklahoma Farm Bureau recently named Megan Fanning as the organization’s economic development coordinator.
Fanning will connect new agricultural enterprises across the state with funding sources to further develop rural Oklahoma.
“Most of us have been impacted by rural communities, whether we grew up in them or have grown a passion for them,” said Fanning. “We always say agriculture is the lifeblood of Oklahoma, and I hope that this position will help invigorate that and keep people in rural Oklahoma.”
Fanning will assist with investments in new or expanding businesses with an opportunity to change their industries for the better and create jobs in rural Oklahoma.
Fanning began her career at BancFirst in credit analysis and lending. Originally from Morrison, Oklahoma, Fanning received a bachelor’s degree in agribusiness with a minor in finance from Oklahoma State University.
