People packed into the Georgia Museum of Agriculture earlier today (10/8) to catch a glimpse of the still-active 86-year-old and his wife, Rosalyn.

Former President Carter spoke about the impact the college had on him as a peanut farmer before he snipped the ribbon for the exhibits.

President Carter reflected on his younger days saying, "We would ride down here and we would learn how to build fences, how to grow peanuts, and plant cotton, and make fishponds. The heart of my education was here at ABAC."

One of the new exhibits chronicles the former president's life before, during, and after his time in office.

It offers a rare glimpse of the humanitarian work he and Mrs. Carter have accomplished.

The second exhibit contains rare folk pottery by Huey and Anne Wheeler.
