Carol Reed of Martin was recently named Executive Director of the Tennessee Corn Promotion Council (TCPC). TCPC works to support Tennessee corn growers in the state in conjunction with the Tennessee Corn Promotion Board and the Tennessee Corn Growers Association.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to work with, and on behalf of, the corn producers of Tennessee,” Reed said. “With the passage of the Tennessee corn check-off, the state’s corn growers placed their confidence in the TCPC to implement programs that will develop and enhance a sustainable environment for Tennessee corn growers. I am grateful for the oppor-tunity to be on the ground floor of this important initiative.” 

Reed’s lifelong passion for produc-tion agriculture is evident in her nearly 20-year stint with the Weakley County Farm Bureau Board of Directors. She is also the former Executive Director of the Northwest Tennessee Entrepreneur Center, where she focused her efforts on working with start-ups, young farmers, and existing ag-related businesses in the area. She serves on the Advisory Board of the UT Martin College of Business and Global Affairs.

Reed and her husband, David, have a Century Farm in Weakley County that produces corn, soybeans, wheat, and hay.TCPC operates out of the West Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center in Jackson. Reed can be reached at creed@tncornpb.org or 731-819-7111.
