Central College’s Central RED Society will present “Nothing Compares to the Iowa State Fair” with an executive from the Iowa State Fair. The event will be held at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, in the Graham Annex at Central.

A veteran Iowa marketing, public relations and communications professional, Williamson lives on an acreage in Madison County with her family where they raise a few crops, chickens and 4-H show pigs.
