Caldwell County 2016 IFAL Participants
Caldwell County sent 4 students to IFAL (Institute for Future Ag Leaders) this year. Matthew McIntosh went to the University of Kentucky, while Hunter Adams, Destiny Oliver, and Mary Grace Jackson went to Murray State University. IFAL is a unique, five-day summer leadership conference that exposes students to college life and explores different fields of study for careers in agriculture. IFAL allows high school juniors to choose between separate conferences at two of Kentucky’s premier universities. This year’s IFAL conferences were held June 12-16, 2016, at Murray State University in Murray and June 19-23, 2016, at the University of Kentucky in Lexington.
The IFAL program helps students become more familiar with Farm Bureau, promote agricultural-related career choices, provide leadership development opportunities, and promote each participating university.
