-A A +A

Trimble County High School’s Katelyne Temple is among 89 high school juniors who have accepted invitations to attend Kentucky Farm Bureau’s Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders.

The Institute is a unique five-day summer leadership conference that highlights a variety of careers in agriculture while exposing high school students to a preview of college life. IFAL students are among the top in their class, plan to further their education at the post-secondary level and have an interest in pursing a career in agriculture.

During the weeklong IFAL conference, attendees will gain a better understanding of the nature and needs of the agriculture industry, see how basic and applied science is utilized in agriculture and learn of the political process used to develop agricultural policy. Participants will engage in team-building and recreational activities, attend classes and hear from speakers focusing on the values of leadership, social, communication and motivational skills, and visit research farms and other agriculture-related industries.

IFAL is split into two identical sessions. Katelyne will attend the event in Lexington, hosted at the University of Kentucky, on June 19-23.
