From local sources


Jordan Seger, the 26-year-old son of Tom and Cindy Seger of Jasper, is the new director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture Division of Soil Conservation. He was promoted to the job this summer and was the subject of a July 19 feature story in Indiana AgriNews.

Seger, a 2006 graduate of Jasper High School and 2010 graduate of Indiana University, was hired by the Department of Agriculture in 2011. He was part of a team in northwest Indiana that did survey design and worked on conservation practices. Last year, he was promoted to program manager of agricultural and environmental affairs for the Division of Soil Conservation.

He grew up working on a poultry farm and studied environmental science at IU. During the summers, he worked for the National Park Service in Maine and Alaska, where he studied wildlife as well as air and water quality.
