Farm Credit of the Virginias (FCV) recently announced that Trent Boatwright of Buena Vista, Virginia, has joined the Harrisonburg branch as a Loan Officer. He brings with him fresh ideas of a recent graduate and a passion for agriculture.
From a young age, Boatwright knew that he wanted to pursue a career as a loan officer in the agricultural industry.

Boatwright recently graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Agricultural Business Management and a minor in Entrepreneurship. He is a brother of Alpha Gamma Rho Agricultural Fraternity.
In regards to his new role, Boatwright said, “I am eager to bring new ideas, a strong work ethic, and a success driven mentality to Farm Credit. This opportunity will allow me to work with an industry with boundless possibilities for growth and advancements.” Boatwright continues, “In the short time I’ve been here, I have seen first-hand the teamwork it takes to finalize a loan and the family atmosphere Farm Credit promotes. I have been welcomed with open arms and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.
In his spare time, Boatwright enjoys spending time with family and friends, hunting, fishing, and playing golf with his father.
Ryan White, Commercial Ag Loan Officer and Boatwright’s supervisor is pleased to have him on the team. White said, “Trent has been a shot of energy to our office. He has helped out whenever he could and has learned very quickly.”
