I have been on a journey for the past two years. A journey I never thought I would venture on, I kept telling myself why not someone else. There are plenty of others with more experience than me, I am trying to raise the next generation of ag enthusiasts, I am trying to keep one foot in teaching all while helping my husband farm. The excuses were numerous, but a little voice in my head kept saying, why not you, who says you can’t try. Take the first step, which is the hardest and try. So that is what I did, I applied for the State Promotion and Education Committee, and have been part of it for two years, and will start my second term in November.
