UALR student becomes PR intern

MONTICELLO — Arkansas Farm Bureau has a new intern, Bricen Pace, giving this college student an opportunity at real-world experience.

Pace, son of Grant and Elizabeth Pace of Monticello (Drew County), is the intern for Farm Bureau’s Public Relations Department. He is an undergraduate at the University of Arkansas Little Rock with a major focus in mass communications and a minor in philosophy.
 
Pace is the next generation of his family involving himself with Arkansas Farm Bureau. His grandfather Homer Pace, 94, has served on the Drew County Farm Bureau board since 1960. From 1957- 2011, Homer only missed four state conventions. Following his father’s footsteps, Bricen’s father Grant Pace has served on two Farm Bureau county boards, Drew and Ashley counties. Grant served as vice president for six years and president for two in Drew County. For the last six years, Grant was chairman of the forestry division of Arkansas Farm Bureau. 

“I’ve had green hands from picking Bradley tomatoes on my grandfather’s farm. I’ve walked my father’s logging jobs, and I know my roots,” Bricen said. “Arkansas Farm Bureau has been a part of my family well before I was born, so I’m honored to carry on the family tradition by working with Arkansas Farm Bureau.”

“The Paces have been a part of Farm Bureau’s family for more than 50 years, and we welcome Bricen to Arkansas Farm Bureau for this 15-week internship,” said Steve Eddington, the organization’s public relations director.
