Whitney Sangster, who grew up on a cotton and peanut row crop farm in Wilcox and Dooly counties, has joined the Georgia Foundation for Agriculture (GFA) staff as a fundraising and events assistant. She graduated from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College with a Bachelor of Science in agricultural communications in December 2022.
“Growing up on a family row crop farm in Wilcox County has driven my passion for agriculture. I’m very passionate about advocating for all areas of the ag industry,” Sangster said.
Sangster worked with the Colquitt Regional Medical Foundation (CRMF) from June 2021 until beginning her new position with the GFA in mid-August. At the CRMF, Sangster helped the foundation staff build and maintain relationships with key donors and stakeholders. She also assisted in planning, promoting and holding CRMF fundraising events.
“My background and experience in non-profit fundraising has prepared me for this new role, and I am excited to be part of the Georgia Foundation for Agriculture team,” Sangster said.
While attending ABAC, Sangster was a member of the ABAC Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow. Growing up, she was an active member of the Crisp County 4-H Club from 5th-12th grades serving as a county 4-H board member and a term as president in high school.
Sangster is the daughter of Wayne and Cathy Sangster of Pineview.
