Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Ryan Quarles will be the featured speaker at this month’s Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

Under his leadership, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) started several new programs, including initiatives to combat hunger and connect Kentucky farmers to new markets.

Prior to serving as Commissioner of Agriculture, Quarles represented Scott, Owen, and Fayette counties for three terms in the Kentucky General Assembly.

In 2006, Quarles graduated from the University of Kentucky with three undergraduate majors and two graduate degrees. In 2008, he was awarded a full scholarship to Harvard University, where he studied higher education, government, and law. After graduating with a Master’s degree in higher education, he returned home to finish his last year of law school at the University of Kentucky. In 2018, he graduated from Vanderbilt University with his doctorate in higher education.

Quarles grew up on his family’s farm in Scott County, coming from a family that has lived in central Kentucky for over 200 years. At the age of 34, Commissioner Quarles is the youngest statewide elected official in the country.

7th Annual Kentucky Proud Expo

The Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce will also be hosting the 7th Annual Kentucky Proud Expo before and after the November luncheon to highlight Pulaski County “Kentucky Proud” vendors and the products they make here in our community.

All of the invited Kentucky Proud vendors will be selling their products, so please consider bringing a few extra dollars to spend and support these great local businesses.
