On October 25, Midsouth NAMA traveled to Martin, TN to visit their student chapter. In attendance were Lesley Landry and Amy Sharp (Sullivan Branding), Dave Rhylander (consultant, retired Monsanto), Darrah Pierce (Farm Progress) and Buddy Pierce (Darrah’s husband and Louisiana farmer).

Upon arrival, the group was greeted by Dr. Racha Tewari, professor and NAMA team liaison who gave attendees a tour of the department and then visited a class. Students discussed two ideas currently being vetted by the teams in the hopes of selecting one to compete in April.

Following the class session, the professional members joined Carol Reed, Executive Director of the Northwest TN Entrepreneur Center. She shared with the team the work they do for the area, which has resulted in over 100 jobs created and millions in capital revenue for the region. Their commitment is to facilitate start-ups that have a connection to the Ag industry
