It’s a beautiful place.” Smith and Tammy Powell, retired Pike County Extension coordinator, will be the featured speakers at the tree dedication.Powell worked with Carpenter for several years at the Extension office and said Carpenter forgot more about horticulture and animal science than most people will ever know.“David knew his business and he never got tired of sharing his knowledge with others,” Powell said. “He was the ideal co-worker. He worked hard and he was supportive of all our programs, including 4-H, which was not his favorite. Horticulture and animal science were his heart. He was good at what he did.”Powell said Carpenter kept things lively in the Extension office.
