Shanika Springer, receptionist/administrative assistant in the co-located offices of the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) and National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), will depart the organizations on Friday, Feb. 7, to take a position with Howard University closely aligned with her program of study.
Springer joined the organizations in July, representing the Council and NCGA by serving as the first point of contact for callers and visitors, in addition to other various administrative duties. She is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree at Howard, where she is majoring in human development with a minor in communications.
“Shanika has been a welcome addition to the administrative team,” said Helen Elmore, USGC director of finance and administration. “While we are sad she is leaving, we are happy to see her pursuing her career goals.”
Please join the Council in wishing Shanika farewell!
