Paige Briner, senior at Edon High School, is ready to do her part in educating future citizens about where their food comes from and the importance of agriculture. Briner gathered with her parents, Kory and Jessica Briner, as well as her agricultural educator and FFA advisor, Mrs. Hannah Everetts, to sign her letter of intent to study agricultural education at Michigan State University this fall.
“I’ve grown up in an agricultural community and have always had a passion for agriculture,” said Briner. “The FFA is a place where everyone can find their voice and that’s something that I want to continue to be a part of. Without a strong role model in my ag teacher, Mrs. (Hannah) Everetts, I don’t think that I would be going into this career.”
