Boyd County Farm Bureau Celebrates Kentucky Ag Literacy Week
  • April 03, 2014

Boyd County Farm Bureau celebrates Kentucky Ag Literacy Week / National Ag Day, March 23-29, 2014

Alex Young, senior at Paul Blazer High School is a co-op student for the first grade teacher at RoseHill Christian School. She read the book “Incredible Bees” by Susan Ashley to the first grade students on behalf of Kentucky Ag Literacy Week / National Ag Day. The book was an excellent way to introduce the students to honeybees. The book described the different kinds of bees (drone, queen, workers) as well as shows the reader how bees help us pollinate. The story covers how bees make honey for us to enjoy.
Alex is a granddaughter of Linda Hardeman, Chairperson of Women’s Committee of Boyd County Farm Bureau Federation.
