Lebanon High School senior Caroline Taylor has been named the 2017 June Dairy Month Chairman for Wilson County. June Dairy Month activities are designed to communicate the value of milk and dairy products to Tennessee consumers.
Taylor will be honored at the Tennessee June Dairy Month Kickoff Event in Nashville at the Ellington Agriculture Center in June. The event will include recognition from Celeste Blackburn, president of the American Dairy Association of Tennessee.
"Being the dairy chairman is important to me," Taylor said. "It is an honor and privilege to represent Wilson County 4-H and the dairy industry."
The celebration recognizes Tennessee 4-H members' efforts to promote June Dairy Month. The event is co-sponsored by Southeast United Dairy Industry Association, 4-H and the Tennessee Farm Bureau.
"I have a passion for the dairy industry. I want to be an advocate and educate others on what the dairy industry is truly about," Taylor noted.
Taylor is the daughter of Netrean and Keith Morris. She is a member of Future Farmers of America, National Honor Society and student council as well as Maple Hill church of Christ youth group. She is also an active member of her 4-H chapter, participating in state dairy judging contests and the state hog show.
"We wish Caroline much success in her role of communicating the nutritional benefits of milk and dairy products to the people in Wilson County," Blackburn said. "Caroline will appreciate the cooperation of the people there. Her interest and enthusiasm will result in a better-informed community from which all will benefit."
