Long-time Harrison County Extension Agent Gary Carter is retiring after the first of the year. However, his successor is no stranger to Harrison County or Extension programs.
Jessica Barnes, who is the Extension’s horticulture agent, will step into Carter’s shoes.
Carter, 63, came to Harrison County as the “ag agent” on Dec. 13, 1983. He grew up in Bourbon County, but claims proudly he is now a Harrison Countian.
