Lincoln, Neb. — Kimberly Clark has joined the Nebraska Corn Board staff as ag program manager to coordinate ethanol programming, a position that will allow her to direct the board’s efforts to increase in-state demand for ethanol, improve and expand the infrastructure of blender pumps and ethanol movement within and outside Nebraska.

She will also maintain a working relationship with ethanol development staff in other corn-producing states, the National Corn Growers Association, ethanol industry groups and Nebraska’s ethanol plants in order to monitor federal legislation that impacts the development and use of all biofuels.

At the same time, Clark will work with consumers, media, schools and the general public to provide sound, factual information regarding ethanol development, production and use.

“The ethanol industry is critical to Nebraska and Nebraska corn farmers, so having Kimberly on staff to coordinate our ethanol programs is significant,” said Don Hutchens, executive director of the Nebraska Corn Board. “Kimberly’s background and experience will help continue the success we’ve seen with ethanol, and her ability to connect with and educate consumers about ethanol will be a tremendous asset.”

Clark, a Leigh, Neb. native, was previously employed with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln as the research project coordinator in dairy-related research projects. She received a master’s of science degree in Animal Science and Agriculture Leadership from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where she also received her bachelor’s of science degree in Animal Science.

The Nebraska Corn Board is a self-help program, funded and managed by Nebraska corn farmers. Producers invest in the program at a rate of 1/4 of a cent per bushel of corn sold. Nebraska corn checkoff funds are invested in programs of market development, research and education.
