Bricen PaceArkansas Farm Bureau’s new intern, Bricen Pace, is the third generation of his family to serve Farm Bureau.

Pace, son of Grant and Elizabeth Pace of Monticello is the intern for Farm Bureau’s Public Relations Department. He is an undergraduate at the University of Arkansas Little Rock with a major focus in mass communications and a minor in philosophy.

Pace’s grandfather Homer Pace, 94, has served on the Drew County Farm Bureau board since 1960. From 1957- 2011, Homer missed only four state conventions.

Following his father’s footsteps, Bricen’s father Grant Pace has served on two Farm Bureau county boards, Drew and Ashley counties. Grant served as vice president for six years and president for two in Drew County. For the last six years, Grant was chairman of the forestry division of Arkansas Farm Bureau.

“I’ve had green hands from picking Bradley tomatoes on my grandfather’s farm. I’ve walked my father’s logging jobs, and I know my roots,” Brice said. “Arkansas Farm Bureau has been a part of my family well before I was born, so I’m honored to carry on the family tradition by working with Arkansas Farm Bureau.”

“The Paces have been a part of Farm Bureau’s family for more than 50 years, and we welcome Brice to Arkansas Farm Bureau for this 15-week internship,” said Steve Eddington, the organization’s public relations director.

Arkansas Farm Bureau is a nonprofit, private advocacy organization of more than 192,000 families throughout the state working to improve farm and rural life.
