“We were once again blown away by the entries in the virtual showcase this year,” says Tom Truitt, President and CEO of MidAtlantic Farm Credit. “These students have such passion and drive for their summer fair projects and we are proud to be able to award them for their hard work. The future of agriculture is looking bright with these 4-H and FFA youth in our region.”
