Allen County Youth Shine at Local Competition

 

Hannah Wheeler and Layne Blankenship gave excellent presentations. Hannah Wheeler discussed the large share of agricultural output from women agriculturalists and thanked the female farmers that have mentored her. Layne Blankenship spoke passionately about the importance of encouraging young farmers and helping to keep alive the dreams of children who hope to be employed as full time farmers.

 

Local homeschooler James Hall, pictured with his parents, educators Tara and Michael Hall, gave a moving and perfectly executed performance of Johann Sebastian Bach's Prelude and Fugue for piano. 

 

Allen County Farm Bureau Women's Chair Martha Arterburn and 2nd Vice Present and Past President Dennis Arterburn served as greeters for the event.
