Meet the 2019-2020 Officer Team

Liza Wilson

President: Liza Wilson

I am a senior Agribusiness major with a minor in Entrepreneurship. I grew up on a farm in Lowrys, SC and hope to return there in the future to run a small business and work with my family on the farm. I am excited to serve as President of the Agribusiness Association this year and hope to continue supporting the growth of the club through meetings, social events, and career opportunities. 


Vice President: Ross Good

I am a Junior from Hershey, Pennsylvania. My future plans include gaining experience in the agricultural field by trading commodities and working closely with farmers across the United States. 


Treasurer: Knox Duncan

I was born in Greenville, SC but I lived in Orlando, FL for 7 years before moving back to SC and ultimately ending up in Beaufort where my family lives now. I am a Sophomore Agribusiness major with a Financial Management minor and I hope to become a loan officer after graduation. I plan to develop a career that bridges finance and agriculture in all that I do. 


Secretary: Carter Jay

Hey y'all! My name is Carter Jay and I am from Greenville, South Carolina. I am a senior majoring in Agribusiness and minoring in Finance. I am secretary of the Agribusiness Club and Vice President of the AAEA Student Board. In my free time I enjoy being on the lake, at the farm, or attending Clemson football games with friends and family. 


Emily White

Event Coordinator: Emily White

My name is Emily White, and I am a sophomore Agribusiness major from Charleston, SC. I have been a member of the Agribusiness Association since my freshman year, and my favorite part about being in the club is the trip we have taken to Denver Downs each fall. As event chair, I look forward to planning more farm visits and fun social events for the club. I am still deciding what I want to do in the future, but I have a strong interest in local agriculture.
