Earlier this spring, Emmanuel College introduced its plan to start a Diversified Agriculture program during the next academic year, pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. With the buzz surrounding the new program, Carry On Trailer Corporation in Lavonia, GA saw an opportunity to help the program get off to a strong start.
Earlier this month, Carry On Trailer donated an 8.5 by 20 trailer to the program, becoming a Founding Farmer.
“The Diversified Agriculture Program at Emmanuel College will certainly be stronger and more equipped to meet the academic and hands on learning demands through the donation of this equipment by Carry-On Trailer,” said Owen Thomason, Program Chair. “The trailer will be used by students and faculty in a variety of ways for the ultimate goal of student achievement. More importantly, this donation by the agriculture industry shows a commitment to life-long learning and support for students in the Northeast Georgia area and beyond. We appreciate Carry-On Trailer for becoming one of our Founding Farmers.”
Todd Gunter, Carry On Trailer Corporation’s Vice President, believes the new Agriculture program at Emmanuel College will have an impact on the North Georgia community, not just the program participants.
“Carry- On Trailer is excited and proud to be a supporter of this new, diverse agricultural program at Emmanuel College,” Gunter said. “An Agriculture degree was instrumental in the foundation of Carry-On Trailer, obtained and put to use by the founder along with several members of our management team. A program like this has proven results at Carry-On Trailer and will help Emmanuel College in its world outreach. Having a local college that expands upon great programs taught at the primary levels, a program that in some way touches so many families and industries within our county, one that is diverse and close to home, we at Carry- On Trailer, want to mentor such educational opportunities. “
