The 2020 ARA Class of Rising Stars was announced during the annual ARA Conference & Expo on Dec. 2 in the video below. Ag leaders from across the country celebrated these emerging leaders in the ag retail industry.

Atticus is the ARA Rising Stars program sponsor and implemented a new essay and video contest challenging each Rising Star to explain what leadership in agriculture means to them.

Logan Williams with Brandt Agronomic Services was the chosen winner of the essay and video contest and will travel to the Atticus headquarters in North Carolina to shadow leadership.
