Former President George W. Bush will be the keynote speaker Feb. 15, 2012 during World Ag Expo in Tulare, Calif., at the kickoff of a fundraising event to launch a unique program to enfold returning veterans into the agricultural industry.

 

Stacey Beachy, Director of Corporate Partnerships for the International Agri-Center, stated that, “We are committed to train and place veterans with both an interest in, and an aptitude for the agricultural industry. The program identifies with the challenges of recently returned veterans who face difficulties starting new careers-we believe that agricultural community is well suited to provide jobs to returning service-members.”
