The Georgia Peanut Commission honored Chambliss during its 38th Annual Georgia Peanut Farm Show in Tifton
TIFTON — The Georgia Peanut Commission (GPC) honored one of the state’s biggest supporters of peanut farmers on Thursday, inducting U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss into the Peanut Hall of Fame during the 38th Annual Georgia Peanut Farm Show at the University of Georgia Tifton Campus Conference Center.
Induction into the Peanut Hall of Fame is the highest recognition one can receive from the growers in the state of Georgia.
“I cannot tell you how humbled I am to be receiving this honor from people I have so much respect for.” Chambliss, who is stepping down this year after four terms in the Senate, said. “You are the people who make this great country what it is today.”
