Bayli Alley has been named the 2019 June Dairy Month Chairman for Anderson County.
Alley will be honored May 30 at the Tennessee June Dairy Month Kickoff Event at Battle Mountain Farm in College Grove. The event includes recognition from Celeste Blackburn, president of the American Dairy Association of Tennessee.
The official kickoff celebration recognizes Tennessee 4-H member’s efforts to promote June Dairy Month in Tennessee. The event is co-sponsored by The Dairy Alliance, 4-H and the Tennessee Farm Bureau.
June Dairy Month activities are designed to communicate the value of milk and other dairy products to Tennessee consumers. Chairpersons play a vital role in spreading dairy’s message in their communities.
“I used to be lactose intolerant, so I couldn’t have dairy. It made me realize how much dairy impacts everyday life,” Alley said. “Having this honor gives me the opportunity to share with other youth the importance of dairy.”
Alley, a sophomore at Anderson County High School, is the daughter of Terri and Jason Alley. Bayli received the silver and gold in the President’s Volunteer Service Award. Alley is also a member of Allies of Substance Abuse Prevention in addition to her school’s French Club, ACHS Cheer and Student Government. She participates in multiple pageants and is a Knoxville Ice Bears Ice Girl. Bayli is an active member of her 4-H chapter, participating in nutrition, health and fitness projects and attending the All-Star Conference, Congress and Round-up. She competes in 4-H Public Speaking contests.
“We wish Bayli much success in her role of communicating the nutritional benefits of milk and dairy products to the people in Anderson County,” said American Dairy Association of Tennessee president Celeste Blackburn. “Bayli will appreciate the cooperation of the people there. Her interest and enthusiasm will result in a better informed community from which all will benefit.”
