2014 Skilled Trades Support Award of Excellence
A lifelong resident of Watkinsville, Brooke Powell graduated from Oconee County High School, and then from the University of Georgia with an agribusiness degree.
Her parents own a barn where they board horses, and her great-uncle owns a Christmas tree farm—she fills in at both of these businesses at varying times throughout the year.
She enjoys running and competing in triathlons. She loves to work inside and outside, and her position as agricultural specialist provides the perfect combination of both.
She started working at the J. Phil Campbell Sr. Research and Education Center in 2007 and took a full-time position in 2009.
