Boyd County Farm Bureau Celebrates Kentucky Farm Bureau Ag Literacy Week

 

Boyd County Farm Bureau celebrated Kentucky Farm Bureau Ag Literacy Week on March 13-19, 2016. Boyd County Farm Bureau Board of Directors purchased over 600 copies of the book "Old Ben" by Jesse Stuart. These books were given out to all the fourth grade students in Boyd County schools. Summit Elementary School was the first stop. President David Horn and Director John Campbell of the Boyd County Farm Bureau went to the schools to pass out the books to students. The students could hardly wait to read them. President David Horn said it was important to get the students reading at an early age, and this book doesn't just help reading skills but teaches a little about agriculture.
