The Clemson Alumni Association recently honored Lori Anne Carr, vice president and administrative manager at Titan Farms, with a 2019 Clemson Alumni Distinguished Service Award.

Carr and her husband, Chalmers Carr, farm more than 6,200 acres of peaches and vegetables at Titan Farms, Ridge Spring, S.C. Lori Anne Carr graduated from Clemson University with a bachelor of arts in elementary education in 1990 and a master of education administration in 1992. They started Titan Farms in 1999, according to a news release.

She is also president of peach processing company Palmetto Processing Solutions.

In 2017, they received the Top Producer of the Year Award. Top Produce and The Packer are Farm Journal publications. They also received the Bayer CropScience Produce Innovation Award.

Lori Anne Carr has volunteered on the Clemson University Board of Visitors and the university’s foundation board, as a member of the Development, Finance, Nominations and Policy & Constitution committees, according to the release.

“Lori Anne’s dedication and service to Clemson University is evident not only by her financial support but by her active involvement,” George Askew, vice president for public service and agriculture, wrote in a letter of support. “Whether she is speaking to a class, hosting a group from campus on their farm, serving on a board or speaking to the state legislature on Clemson’s behalf, (she) always represents her alma mater in the most positive and professional manner.”
