Sunbelt Expo Kicks Off

Posted by romeethredge on October 15, 2013

Today was the first day of the Sunbelt Expo in Moultrie Georgia.  State 4-H and FFA Leaders were present at the Official Opening of the Event with Chip Blalock and retiring Director Bill Patten. I was proud to see Seminole County represented well with our own Stephan Rolle, top green jacket, participating in the event today.

The Expo Farmer of the Year was named today and it was South Carolina’s James Cooley.  The other state winners were Annie Dee of Alabama, Phillip DeSalvo of Arkansas, Will Harris of Georgia, Scott Travis of Kentucky, Abbott Myers of Mississippi, Wilbur Earp of North Carolina, Richard Jameson of Tennessee, and Linwood Jones of Virginia. I was one of the tour guides on the VIP tour they were on this morning and it was a pleasure meeting several of the winners.

The Expo will run for 2 more days.
