One person of influence he had the opportunity to meet was Ms. Barbara Corcorm from the hit show ‘Shark Tank. Hamp also was able to have lunch with Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black.

Hamp also was able to watch the Young Farmer and Rancher finals which is an agriculture competition to solve problems on modern agriculture laws passed that effect agriculture. Hamp was also interviewed about his experiences at the convention and his involvement with 4H and FFA by Rural Farm Development Tv.
