Since 1998, Walden has worked with the US Department of Agriculture as an Area Resource Conservationist, responsible for the conservation planning activities within a 42-county area centered in Waycross.

Prior to that, Walden, a UGA graduate with a degree in Agriculture Education, worked with the Department of Agriculture in Cochran as a Soil Conservationist, providing leadership, management and technical assistance to a variety of programs in Bleckley and Twiggs counties.

“I look forward to working with Mr. Walden.  His experience with the United States Department of Agriculture as a conservationist will certainly be beneficial for the College,” said Dr. Cathryn Mitchell, president of Southeastern Tech, “Our Forestry program will directly benefit from his extensive knowledge.  And as a lifelong resident of Treutlen County, Mr. Walden will be a great representative for that area.”
