Gainesville, Fla. – Kelly Mosley’s work at promoting better understanding of contemporary agriculture has earned her a statewide honor. She is the recipient of Florida Farm Bureau’s 2015 Volunteer Communicator of the Year Award.
Mosley and her family operate a crop maze on their Clay County farm. During the fall season she helps lead visitors on tours at the maze, providing them with information about food production practices, natural resource conservation and food safety.
Her volunteer service includes a long list of other activities involving agricultural education. She has a passion to advocate on behalf of farm families and their contributions to our quality of life in Florida. She embraces this role as a farmer, as a classroom teacher, as a district school administrator and as a citizen involved in her community.
Mosley has served as a leader in the Clay County Farm Bureau, both the state and local Young Farmers and Ranchers programs, the Clay County Cattlemen’s Association, the Clay County Fair Association, the Bonnie Plant Cabbage Program, Food Check-Out Week and Farm-City Week activities, Ag Literacy Day, local 4-H clubs and school mini-grant projects.
The Florida Farm Bureau Volunteer Communicator of the Year Award is designed to recognize a Farm Bureau member who has performed exceptional service in communicating how agriculture benefits our larger society. Mosley is the initial recipient of the award, established earlier this year. She received the award at the Florida Farm Bureau Annual Meeting in Ponte Vedra Beach on Oct. 29.
