This year, Clemson University will host Christine Chavez, granddaughter of Cesar Chavez (American labor leader and civil rights activist who co-founded the National Farm Workers Association in 1962). Christine currently works for the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, as an Outreach Coordinator, for the Public Affairs Team.
