Henry Dorough

Henry Dorough, a regional Extension agent with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, was recently elected president of the National Association of County Agricultural Agents (NACAA) during NACAA’s 98th Annual Meeting and Professional Improvement Conference and Galaxy Conference, held in Pittsburgh, Penn.

Dr. Gary Lemme, ACES director, says Dorough will be a great asset to NACAA and its members.

“NACAA will benefit from Henry’s expertise and leadership, much as the farmers, producers and others he has worked with over the years in Alabama have benefited,” says Lemme. “He will bring the knowledge, commitment and passion to his tenure as NACAA president that he gives daily to the citizens of Alabama.”

Dorough previously served NACAA as secretary for three years, followed by two additional years serving the association as vice president and president-elect. He was one of more than 500 Cooperative Extension Service agricultural agents and their families who attended the week-long professional improvement program. In addition to the agricultural agents, more than 1,700 Extension Service employees specializing in 4-H, Family and Consumer Science, Natural Resources and Community Development attended the Galaxy Conference.

Dorough holds two degrees from Auburn University. He received a B.S. degree in Animal Science in 1987, and a Masters in Animal Nutrition in 1990.
