Hall joins Georgia Foundation for Agriculture Staff
By Jennifer Whittaker, Georgia Farm Bureau
Hannah Hall has joined the Georgia Foundation for Agriculture (GFA) as an educational programs assistant for the foundation’s Georgia Ag Experience Mobile Ag Classroom.
Hall will work with Virginia Fulwood to set the Georgia Ag Experience’s schedule for visits to schools, community, and statewide events as it travels statewide. Hall will also serve as a mobile classroom instructor and work closely with county Farm Bureau staff and volunteers as the GAE visits communities. She replaces Natalie Bennett Taddei, who took another job closer to home after getting married in May.
“We’re excited to have Hannah join the Georgia Foundation for Agriculture team,” said GFA Executive Director Lily Baucom. “Her passion for teaching students about agriculture will be valuable as an instructor with the Georgia Ag Experience mobile classroom.”
Hall, a native of Floyd County, received an associate of science in agricultural education from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. She is earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration online from Southern New Hampshire University. Hall spent almost nine years in banking as a loan processor.
“I am very excited to be getting back to my initial passion – agricultural education. This opportunity with the GAE Mobile Classroom allows me to educate elementary students on where their food, clothes, and shelter comes from, but also encourages them to be excited about a career in agriculture,” Hall said. “I was impressed and excited to learn the level of technology the mobile ag classroom showcases; this will be essential in the success of the program. I look forward to growing the program and traveling the state!”
Hall, who grew up around farming, was an active FFA member as a student and is an active member of the Floyd County Young Farmers Association. She describes herself as a huge Atlanta Braves fan and spends her spare time watching or attending games.
