BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Wheat Commission marketing specialist Erica Olson has been elected chairwoman of the national Wheat Foods Council for the coming year.

The nonprofit was formed in 1972 to promote grains as part of a healthy diet. The organization is supported voluntarily by farmers, millers and people in related industries.

Olson grew up on a family farm near Mohall, earned a master's degree in agricultural economics from North Dakota State University and has been working for the state Wheat Commission since 2006.
