2016 Women's Leadership Conference - Kentucky Farm Bureau

2016 Women's Leadership Conference

 

Eight members of the Lincoln County Farm Bureau Women's Committee attended the Kentucky Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Conference on March 4th and 5th, 2016: Thelma Blair, Melinda Pence, Cathy Pleasants, Linda Gooch, Joyce Hester, Phyllis Long, Gracie Gilbert and Allene Burton. The conference was a huge success with 82 counties represented - the highest attendance of any previous leadership conference. The ladies heard about member services and legislative concerns. The speakers spoke on a variety of topics, including communication for agriculture and four things that the speaker learned from her Daddy. The motivational/comedian speaker at the end  encouraged the women to be brave about what they needed to do to reach their goals. There were additional workshops on health and fitness as well as four tours offered of the area. Money was raised at the live and silent auction and went toward scholarships and grants that Kentucky Farm Bureau offers.

Down the Backroads | I'm a Better Person for Having Known John Scott

One of the most gratifying things about my job has been all the great people I get to meet and the lasting impressions most of them leave with me. To say the farm families across this state are the "salt of the earth" is quite an understatement.
