GAINESVILLE – The annual Hall County Agribusiness Awards were handed out Tuesday morning at the North Hall Community Center.

Nearly eighty civic and ag-leaders attended the breakfast celebration, a reminder of the significance of agriculture in Hall County and the fact that Georgia was the first state in the nation to create a state Department of Agriculture in 1874.

Receiving the “2016 Friend of Agriculture Award” was dairyman Rex Farmer; Bob Williams won the “2016 Farmer of the Year Award”; Scott and Jennifer Glover, owners of Mountain Fresh Creamery in Clermont, were selected as the “2016 Outstanding Agribusiness Award” winners; and Sewell Blackstock was honored with the “Agriculture Hall of Fame” award.

“We’re extremely honored to receive this award,” Scott Glover told the audience, “but most of all we’re very fortunate to be able to do what we love in an area where we grew up.”  Glover is a fourth generation dairy farmer.

Family tradition and longevity in agriculture is a common thread for two other award winners: Farmer and Blackstock claim deep family roots in the industry.  Williams, on the other hand, is a Gainesville native who started Wauka Mountain Farms in 2008 following a stint in the U.S. Air Force.

White County assistant principal helps in fight for good health

By: Kristen Oliver with Gainesville Times, Jan 2, 2016

Jennifer Glover spent the last year combining her careers in education and food production to help Georgia children live healthier lives. Glover, assistant principal at White County Intermediate School and co-owners of Glo-Crest Dairy and Mountain Fresh Creamery in Clermont, joined the Governor’s Advisory Council on Childhood Obesity in early 2015. Glover, who also serves on the board of directors for the American Dairy Association, said she met with the council three times in 2015. It will meet again Jan. 7 at the state Capitol.

“Our school in White County became a Shape-certified school, and I went through training for that,” she said. “Lots of schools in North Georgia and actually throughout Georgia are becoming Shape schools and taking the pledge to incorporate 30 minutes of exercise into their day.”

The Georgia Shape initiative, brings together representatives from government, businesses, schools and charitable organizations to promote healthy, active lifestyles. In 2013, the initiative launched “Power Up for 30,” a program encouraging elementary schools to add an extra 30 minutes of physical activity into each school day. Several Hall County and Gainesville schools have adopted the initiative, including all Gainesville elementary schools and 20 Hall elementary and middle schools. Glover said White County Intermediate adjusted its school day to accommodate this need for children.

“We’ve actually opened our doors 15 minutes earlier, so we open at 7 a.m.,” she said. “That allows the children to workout in the gym with a P.E. teacher from 7 to 7:30 (a.m.).”

More than 550 schools across Georgia have received grants through the initiative and taken the Power Up for 30 pledge. In meetings with the other members of the advisory council, Glover said they discuss how Shape and other initiatives are benefiting Georgia children.

“During that time, we’ll talk a lot about the program’s we’ve implemented and how they’re working, and research so far of different programs throughout the United States is presented to the council,” she said. Glover said she hopes her work with the council will help young people form stronger futures.

“We’re hoping it will help our children become more physically fit and active, and to maintain that for the rest of their lives,” she said. “We want them to see the importance of good nutrition benefits and daily exercise to create a healthier lifestyle for themselves.”
