The Southeast Produce Council Is Now Accepting Nominations for 2nd Annual Next Generation Awards
MILLEN, GA - If you know anyone you feel deserves recognition in our industry, be sure to nominate them for The Southeast Produce Council’s (SEPC) second annual Next Generation Award. SEPC's award is designed to honor a young person who is among the “Next Generation” of produce leaders for the produce industry, and they're currently accepting nominations.
“This award is truly a recognition of the heartbeat of our industry,” said David Sherrod, President and CEO. “The younger generations are defining how we grow, buy and consume produce in today’s marketplace. People like Adam Lytch, last year’s recipient, will shape our industry for the next 10-15 years and hopefully teach those coming up behind them. The Southeast Produce Council is proud to host this award and even prouder to foster the young talent within our membership and industry.”
Those nominated for this prestigious award must meet the following criteria: 39 years or younger (on the date of application), employed in the produce industry for at least 4 years, a member in “Good Standing” of the SEPC, made a significant contribution to the industry (company). Once all nominations have been received, a committee will review and select the winner who will then be notified and honored during the President’s Dinner Dance at Southern Innovations 2018.
