Welcome to the
"Promoting Soil and Water Conservation in Henry County since 1951"
Position: Soil Conservationist
We would like to introduce one of our newest employees at the Paris Field Office, Mr. Ryan Winchester. Ryan began his position as Soil Conservationist in May 2018.
Ryan is from Clinton, TN, which is just north of Knoxville, and a graduate of Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville. He graduated in December 2017 with a degree in Agriculture and a concentration in Environmental Agriscience. Prior to beginning his new position in Paris, Ryan served 2 internships through NRCS, one in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and one in Rogersville, TN.
Ryan's hobbies include hunting, fishing, and racing. He has been racing off and on since he was 5 years old and recently stepped into a dirt late model. He competes around the East Tennessee area.
We are very excited to have Ryan and we know he'll be a great asset to our Paris Field Office. Ryan looks forward to serving the people of Henry County and working with anyone that steps into our office.
Hugh Hammond Bennett is sometimes called the Father of Soil Conservation. He was instrumental in the creation of the Soil Conservation Service (now NRCS) during the Dust Bowl days of the 1930's. Learn more about him here:
