2017 Georgia Tour Blog Day Two — June 20

Day two of the 2017 Georgia Tour took us to the cities of Douglas, Tifton, and Valdosta. Events included a tour of Optima Chemical Group, the Heritage Station Museum, and a Lions Club meeting in Douglas. In Tifton, we visited the Georgia Peanut Commission where I was able to "drive" an autonomous tractor. We also visited the Georgia Chamber of Commerce's regional office, which opened last month. The day ended with an alumni meeting in Valdosta.
