Congratulations to Emanuel County Institute Agriculture teacher Mrs. Tori Pellerin, who has earned the title of Georgia Certified Plant Professional.

The Georgia Certified Plant Professional exam consists of a written exam and a plant identification exam. The written test is based on a study manual available through the UGA Center for Urban Agriculture and features 100 multiple-choice questions and the second portion of the exam is plant identification which consists of 100 plant specimens. Mrs. Pellerin attended class in July where she mastered the certification.
