Difference Maker Nominee: Liz Vogelsberg

Jan 14, 2022


Liz Vogelsberg
Many times, our employees demonstrate our core values and make a difference without blinking an eye. Farmers Cooperative truly has a dedicated employee base that takes pride in the work we do and the patrons and communities we sere. With so many employees and locations, these difference making acts don't always get recognized by our peers. Because of that, we are excited to roll out a new employee recognition program to help spotlight the hard work employees demonstrate on a day-to-ay basis. This program allows employees to recognize other employees.

Congratulations to Liz Vogelsberg, Grain Originator in Frankfort, on being nominated for making a difference at Farmers Cooperative.
