Presidents Message - May 2013

May 3, 2013


As you know, the second quarter Tennessee Resource Conservation and Development meeting is held in conjunction with our Tennessee Envirothon.

We are most fortunate to have the Tennessee Department of Agriculture sponsorship again in 2013.

Many of you, as leaders of your councils, have been working with Kathy Daugherty, TN Envirothon Program Manager, for months now to prepare for this annual event.

The Executive Committee salutes Kathy for her ability to negotiate a successful funding of the program - especially during a reduced budget from the Department.

Today, the challenge of teaching the next generation of students the value of our natural resources spreads across the traditional rural population and now includes an increasing percentage of urban recruits.

Thus, the mission of Resource Conservation and Development is being thrust into the spotlight.

Are we ready to accept the challenge?
