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.
