Goble named GFB Women's Program/AITC Coordinator

Lauren Goble has been named coordinator of the  Georgia Farm Bureau Women’s Committee and Ag In The Classroom program. She began her duties in her new role on June 4.

A native of Jones County, Goble has worked as the GFB 6th District field representative since July 2016. She will continue her work in the 6th District until that position is filled. Goble previously taught elementary school for eight years in Bibb and Jones counties. She received the 2015 Georgia Ag in the Classroom Teacher of the Year Award from Georgia Farm Bureau and was one of seven teachers nationwide to receive the 2016 Excellence in Teaching about Agriculture Award sponsored from the USDA National Institute of Food & Agriculture and the National Agriculture in the Classroom Organization. She has served as a member of the Jones County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee.

Goble holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Georgia College & State University and a master’s degree in early childhood education from Wesleyan College. 

Goble replaces Donna Rocker, who retired in May after serving as the GFB AITC coordinator for more than 31 years. Rocker began coordinating the GFB Women’s Leadership Program in July 1999, leading the Women’s Committee efforts to improve the agricultural literacy of local communities. She coordinated the GFB High School Art and Middle School Essay Contests and was responsible for the GFB scholarship program until it was transferred completely to the GFB Foundation for Agriculture in 2016.
