“Agriculture is deeply embedded in our history and a vital sector of our economy. Quite simply, it is a way of life critical to who we are as a people and it must be protected. That is why I am so deeply honored to be associated with this outstanding agricultural center. This center is important for Northeast Tennessee not just economically, but culturally. I am thankful we now have this wonderful center to celebrate agriculture and pass on our traditions to the next generation. I could not be more excited for the future of agriculture in Northeast Tennessee."
