Fergus McCain, a junior at Washington County High School, has been chosen to attend the Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders (IFAL), sponsored by Kentucky Farm Bureau.
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.
The conference will be held June 21-25 on the campus of the University of Kentucky and will include special leadership classes and speakers; team building recreation activities; and visits to research farms and agriculture-related industries.
Participants were selected by their county Farm Bureau board of directors with the assistance of school personnel and youth group advisors. Selected students are among the top in their class who plan to further their education at the post-secondary level and have an interest in pursing a career in agriculture.
McCain is the son of Mike and Susan McCain. He is involved in FFA, 4-H, Pep Club and plays baseball for Washington County High School.
