The Alabama Farmers Federation recently welcomed new employees to work with member benefits and the TREASURE Forest program.
Heather Walker of Millry will work as an administrative assistant for member benefits, and William Green of Pintlala will work with the Alabama TREASURE Forest Association (ATFA) as an intern.
Walker has over 12 years of experience as an administrative assistant and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English from the University of West Alabama.
“Alfa and the Alabama Farmers Federation are synonymous with excellent customer service and good, down-home values,” Walker said. “I’m excited to help Federation members get the most bang for their membership buck.”
Walker and her husband, Ben, live in Montgomery with their two children, Cooper, 6, and Casen, 3. Ben is a physical education teacher at Dalraida Elementary School and an assistant football coach at Alabama Christian Academy.
Green, a 2014 Auburn University graduate, has a bachelor’s degree in wildlife sciences and will work directly with Federation Forestry and Wildlife Divisions Director and ATFA Executive Director Rick Oates.
He will help with Classroom in the Forest, ATFA license plates and TREASURE forest certification. Using his background in wildlife sciences, Green will also tackle issues related to feral hog control in Alabama.
Green was a Federation scholarship recipient, and his father serves as an Alfa Insurance agent. He said he’s excited to be coming back home.
“Alfa and the Federation have always been part of my life,” he said. “Whether it’s insurance or school, the Federation has always been there. I’ve known for a while I wanted to get back and work here.”
Green and his wife, Mallory, live in Montgomery where she is a fifth-grade teacher at St. James School.
