Christian County F-S along with CoBank and Growmark again donated some 20-thousand dollars to local youth ag organizations, with checks presented at last week’s Christian County Ag Fair Ag Appreciation Dinner.
Organizations receiving monies included the Taylorville FFA, Morrisonville FFA, Pana FFA, Central A&M FFA, Christian County 4-H, Christian County Ag in the Classroom, Christian County Farm Bureau Foundation, and The Meridian Ag Program.
Over the last 5 years donations to youth agriculture in Christian County will exceed some 85-thousand dollars according to Christian County F-S, with the funds used to promote youth ag organizations, provide college scholarships, help youth participate in programs.
Some of the funds have even helped purchase an FFA jacket or two.
Christian County F-S is proud of the efforts that advisors and students are demonstrating to make agriculture strong in Christian County.
