Ag Center Ribbon Cutting

The South Sisters cut the ribbon to celebrate the grand opening of the Upson-Lee Agriculture Center alongside students and staff of the Thomaston-Upson School System and Future Farmers of America program on Friday, May 19.

Nearly three years of planning and seven months of construction came to an end as the Thomaston-Upson School System held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Upson-Lee Agriculture Center.

The facility, which includes a 10,000-square-foot show arena with seating capacity for more than 200 spectators, is specifically designed to be a multi-use area capable of holding various meetings, agriculture shows, and be a place where the system’s Future Farmers of America students can host regional and state events.

After an introduction by the Upson-Lee FFA Club, Superintendent Dr. Larry Derico welcomed guests to the new agriculture center. Georgia Department of Education Deputy Superintendent Dr. Barbara Wall spoke next and complimented the community on their support of agriculture education. Macey South, Emme Goen, and Molly Greer also spoke before the ribbon cutting ceremony.
