White Oak Pastures has several second-generational family members employed here on the farm. Deion Wallace, IFC Supervisor, is one of them.
During high school, Deion was an athlete: a defensive back and wide receiver in football, a shooting- guard in basketball, and a sprinter in track. After graduating high school, Deion didn’t have to look far to see what the next step in his life would be. Having a mother who was already employed at White Oak Pastures allowed him the opportunity to seek a career here. Deion stated that there was a probationary period but he “was pretty good at what I did,” working alongside his mother in the chicken plant, which led to a permanent position.
