Former Miss America to Headline Sorghum General Session at 2012 Commodity Classic

Tue, 21 Feb 2012 15:01:25 CST

Former Miss America to Headline Sorghum General Session at 2012 Commodity Classic The 2011 Miss America, Teresa Scanlan, will deliver the keynote address during the Sorghum General Session on March 1 during the 2012 Commodity Classic in Nashville, Tenn.

Scanlan, a Nebraska native, began advocating for agriculture during her reign as Miss America by establishing partnerships with several agricultural organizations, including The Hand That Feeds U.S. As a non-traditional spokesperson for agriculture, Scanlan is working to bridge the gap between urban and rural America by speaking about the importance of food production to a broader audience.

“We are so excited to have Teresa as our keynote speaker for this year’s Sorghum General Session,” said NSP Chairman Terry Swanon. “She is an excellent advocate for agriculture, and is a valuable addition to this year’s program.”

Former U.S. House Agriculture Committee Chairman, Larry Combest, now of Combest, Sell & Associates, will discuss the current environment surrounding farm policy in Washington, D.C.

A panel of winners of the 2011 NSP Yield and Management Contest will talk about the secrets to their yield success. Panel members representing a variety of sorghum-producing regions will include Non-Irrigated Bin Buster winner Otto Levin of Kensington, Kan., Conventional-Till Irrigated winner John A. Scates of Sturgis, Ill., and Reduced-Till Irrigated second place winner Monte Wright of Perryton, Texas.

Updates from the National Sorghum Producers and the United Sorghum Checkoff Program will be given, as well.

The 2012 Sorghum General Session will begin at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, March 1 in the Opryland Resort and Convention Center’s Tennessee Ballroom C. Prior to the event, there will be a Sorghum Meet and Greet in Tennessee Lobby A from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. All Classic attendees and media are invited to attend.
