New Ag Leadership Program is Helping to Shape the Next Generation
If the agriculture industry is going to be more than it has been, its leaders are going to have to be more than those of generations before.

The class culminated with a trip to the state capitol in Sacramento, where students shared their projects and met with state lawmakers. View Article.
