On Nov. 2, Kayla Hoelting, recent graduate of Troy Buchanan High School, will be honored as a National AFA Leader and Academic Scholar during a celebration of agriculture at the 2012 AFA Leader in Agriculture Award Dinner.
The AFA Leader in Agriculture Award Dinner is held in conjunction with the AFA Leaders Conference — a dynamic leader event, which connects the top agriculture students with industry professionals. AFA is looking forward to welcoming Hoelting along with over 500 other students from across the nation to the conference in Kansas City. Hoelting will have the opportunity to network with peers and professionals and invest in her personal development. The AFA Leader and Academic Scholarship provides for Hoelting’s attendance to this event and support toward her freshman year tuition costs at Northwest Missouri State University where she is studying animal science and industry.
