AgriPOWER opens doors

Published Mar. 30, 2015

AgriPOWER Class VI graduation has come and gone. Itís hard to believe it has been nine months. We began this journey as 19 strangers with a passion for agriculture and personal development, and came out as 19 friends with a greater understanding of each other and the industry in which we all are connected. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have participated in this program. I have grown as a person, an agriculturalist and a leader. All attributes that will be helpful for the future of our industry and my family.
