Good morning! This is Travis Wilke from the Class of 2020, and I am highlighting my favorite tour from this year. For me, I immediately think of our time at the USDA Farm Services Agency office which was organized by Jace Greenwood. Before going into the tour, I was already excited to hear from Loleta Yonaka and Gary Zwilling. I knew Loleta from all of the amazing work she has done in handling the local Envirothon competition for FFA chapters, and Gary has been a great teacher and coach for the Olney FFA Forestry team. Along with the provided breakfast and a tour of the office, we were able to hear a very interesting message from Loleta and Gary regarding the Soil & Water Conservation District, Natural Resource Conservation Service, and Farm Service Agency. I was interested in hearing about the services they provide to private landowners such as the SWCD renting a no-till drill and the programs offered by the NRCS. The time they invest in their jobs and the youth of the community does not go unnoticed. As agriculture remains important to our community, this tour was important for my year in CEO. Thank you to the USDA Farm Services Agency in Olney!
