Izabella Gray will each receive a $500 scholarship to help with her expenses for the upcoming college year, thanks to Guernsey County Farm Bureau.

Izabella is the daughter of Russell and Courtney Gray. Izabella volunteered in many different opportunities such as dog shelters, 4-H food stands, planting gardens in nursing homes, real money real world, and Night to Shine. 

Izabella said, “I love volunteering in a wide range of things, so I can see different perspectives on life. Such as nursing homes and being able to talk to so many people with so many different backgrounds or Night to Shine where you learn a lot about people with disabilities and their families. I get to help people but also see a world I have never seen.”

Izabella is attending The Ohio State University Wooster studying agriscience education with a minor in agriculture production. After college, Izabella plans to become an agriculture teacher in a local high school. “One of the main reasons I want to become an agriculture teacher is to share my passion for agriculture while educating the future.”

Guernsey County Farm Bureau congratulates Izabella on her accomplishments and wishes all the best to our area graduate in their future endeavors. For more information on Guernsey County Farm Bureau or available scholarships for next year, phone 740-425-3681 or email [email protected].

Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

Strong communities
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
