WASHINGTON, DC -- This week during the annual Government Affairs Conference, USA Rice presented Skylar Sowder and Trevor White with the USA Rice Congressional Staff Award in appreciation for their contributions to the U.S. rice industry.
Sowder is the legislative assistant for Senator John Boozman (R-AR) handling agriculture and related issues. Prior to joining Boozman’s staff, she worked on the House Agriculture Committee for both former chairmen, Representatives Frank Lucas (R-OK) and Mike Conaway (R-TX). White is on the House Agriculture Committee staff, working for Conaway on commodity support programs and crop insurance.
“We couldn’t think of more deserving individuals to receive these awards this year,” said Ben Mosely, USA Rice vice president of government affairs. “Skylar and Trevor are true champions for the rice industry and we are very happy to honor them for the work they do.”
