Vernon Cox joins NCDA&CS as environmental specialist

RALEIGH — Vernon Cox has joined the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services as environmental programs specialist.

Prior to joining NCDA&CS, Cox worked 15 years with the N.C. Division of Soil and Water Conservation, and had been chief of its Technical Services Section since 2004.

“Vernon has extensive experience working with environmental programs affecting agriculture,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “He has worked closely with local, state and federal conservation partners to assist North Carolina’s agricultural community in addressing environmental and natural resource issues.”

A native of Columbus County, Cox grew up on a small tobacco farm near Tabor City. He is a graduate of N.C. State University, where he earned bachelor’s degrees in agricultural business management and agricultural engineering technology and a master’s degree in agricultural economics.
