Longtime wheat industry leader Tammy Dennee has resigned from her position as executive director of the Oregon Wheat Growers League.
Dennee notified industry members of her resignation Sept 9. In an e-mail, Dennee said all matters related to the league should be addressed to the main office.
"I have enjoyed the many opportunities for personal and professional growth throughout my 17 years working for the growers," Dennee said in the e-mail. "My greatest pleasure has been to serve the growers and assist them in their leadership of this great association. The league has much to be proud of and I feel honored to have been part of many great achievements."
"Tammy has been a wonderful employee of the Oregon Wheat Growers League and has put many years of hard work in for the benefit of every wheat grower in the state of Oregon," league president Darren Padget told the Capital Press. "This morning Tammy tendered her resignation and the OWGL board will begin looking for her replacement as soon as possible. We wish her all the best."
Padget declined to comment further on Dennee's departure.
