Program Coordinator, Archive

Abby Schulte joined the World Food Prize Foundation in 2020 as the Archive Program Coordinator. She is responsible for overseeing and curating the World Food Prize Foundation Archive and the Ambassador Kenneth M. Quinn Archive. On a daily basis, she preserves and promotes the archives’ contents through such processing efforts as assessing collections, cataloging materials, digitizing records, and conducting special research projects. She will also oversee the creation of a digital archive for the Foundation. 

Prior to her position at the Foundation, Abby worked with a variety of archives and museum collections through the Iowa Quilt Museum, the Capitol Hill Internship Program in Washington, D.C. and the Simpson College Archive.

Abby graduated from Simpson College in May of 2020 with a B.A. in history and political science. During her undergraduate career she worked as an Andrew Goodman Vote Everywhere Ambassador and John C. Culver Public Policy Fellow.

In 2018, the Culver Center selected her to attend the National Campaign for Political & Civic Engagement conference at the Harvard Institute of Politics. Upon return, she served on the development committee for the Simpson Dialogue Series, which brings students together in respectful, structured dialogue sessions to share their views on controversial and challenging issues. 

In 2020, she was awarded the Joe Walt Outstanding Student in History Award. Abby brings a passion for sharing knowledge and history to further the development of the archives at the World Food Prize Foundation.
