Francis Marion's Dr. Fred Carter Speaks at Staff Meeting

Francis Marion University’s Dr. Fred Carter was the inspirational speaker for the ArborOne Farm Credit staff meeting on February 15th. Dr. Carter shared the history of the university and how it has well-served the state. He also discussed how programs have grown and would be growing in the future – nurse practitioner, industrial engineering and masters of public administration degrees. Dr. Carter’s words were inspiring, but his visible passion and love for Francis Marion University were even more inspirational. He encouraged the employees of ArborOne to care passionately for the customers and the company. And for them to know that they are making a difference in the lives of the farmers and agribusiness owners in the Pee Dee.

It was a especially meaningful to have Dr. Carter speak since 20 of the 51 employees of ArborOne Farm Credit received their undergraduate, masters or both from Francis Marion University.
