TULARE, Calif. -- Shelley Khal, chairman of the World Ag Expo Media Committee, has been named 2008 World Ag Expo show chairman.

The future chairman brings a World Ag Expo heritage to her role: She is the wife of 2003 chairman, Dan Khal, and a member of a large family of Orange Jacket volunteers at the expo.

Khal herself became involved 16 years ago, working in the media center, which is very, very different today, she said. "We are busy for four days straight, and media come from throughout the world."

Khal works for Cigna Health as a client service partner.
