LaDon was raised on a dairy farm in northwest Georgia. After graduation from the University of Georgia with a B.S. in Animal Nutrition, he returned to the family dairy farm. He managed the family dairy farm for six years, specializing in herd health. After earning a second degree in Computer Science, LaDon managed technology and operations for community banks. As a member of the bank’s Executive Leadership Team, he implemented several systems and department changes to provide service and support to internal and external customers.
In 2016 LaDon left the financial industry to return to his first passion. Desiring to be involved with the agriculture community, he worked as team lead with Tractor Supply Company at a store local to his family farm. He enjoyed assisting and advising his friends and neighbors with farming solutions.
LaDon lives with his wife Sherry in Trion, their life-long hometown in northwest Georgia. He enjoys his family which includes four grandchildren. He also enjoys working on his farm, which now supports a small herd of Belted Galloways.
