Dr. Karen Hood Hopkins, Assistant Professor of Marking, knows what millennials want. Her expertise has garnered an invitation from Kentucky Farm Bureau to lead a workshop at their annual meeting on Sept 21st at Belterra Resort in Florence, Ind. For nearly one hundred years, Kentucky Farm Bureau has served as the "Voice of Kentucky Agriculture," representing the interests of agricultural producers and rural communities. Founded in 1919, KFB now has nearly 500,000 members and is one of the largest Farm Bureaus in the nation.
