Agricenter Ag Day Celebration

2021 Ag Day Art Contest Theme

Typically, Agricenter educates 10,000 students each year about the importance of where their food and fiber come from.  In 2020 and 2021 so far, has been anything but typical as you can tell from this year’s Ag Day Celebration.  This was the first virtual Ag Day experience and hopefully the only one.  Instead of gathering for lunch, learning about Agriculture and celebrating our Art Contest Winners, we were gathered at our computers to listen to the Commissioner of Agriculture, Dr. Charlie Hatcher talk about the importance of agriculture.  Also, Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris spoke about Shelby County being the leader of agriculture industry.  We had a great group of panelists discussing how “Agriculture is essential to bringing Food, Family, and Friends to the table” in each of their areas, moderated by Margaret Oldham.  The panelists included Brad Williams, Kelley Enterprises; Sean McCarty, Helena Agri-Enterprises; and Carol Reed, Executive Director of Tennessee Corn Growers Association.  We celebrated the 2020 Ag Day Art Contest and the 2021 Ag Day Art Contest.
