ONEONTA – The state agriculture commissioner, Richard Ball of Schoharie, will speak with students in Hartwick College’s Entrepreneurship class this coming Friday.
Ball was invited by Lecturer in Business Scott Schwartz, after the two met recently at Schoharie County Family Farm Day. Ball is not only the state’s agriculture commissioner, but also a farmer and businessman.
“Commissioner Ball’s visit is perfectly timed to emphasize how our campus theme, Food and Community, overlaps with our business classroom lessons on sustainable business practices. We appreciate his generous sharing of his time and expertise,” said Penny Wightman, Hartwick’s Business Administration & Accounting Department chair.
