From Atlanta to D.C., CAES alumni and friends guide agriculture policy
In January 2019, Brian Kemp (BSA – Agricultural Mechanization Technology, ’87) was sworn in as the 83rd governor of Georgia. He is the first College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences alumnus and the 26th University of Georgia graduate to hold the office.
Meanwhile, UGA's ties to national agriculture policy are also well represented in Washington, D.C. by three men with strong connections to the university and the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences: Former CAES Dean J. Scott Angle (Director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture), Sonny Perdue (U.S. Secretary of Agriculture) and Zippy Duvall (President of the American Farm Bureau Federation).
