I really enjoyed attending the Governor's School for Agriculture because it allowed me to take classes on topics that aren't discussed in normal school curriculum, but are extremely relevant to the well-being of the national and global community. I was able to tour college labs, watch drones, sample stream water, and visit farms and animal barns. I also enjoyed meeting new friends from different parts of Virginia and forming a strong bond with the other students in the program. - Asha Rollins, Class of 2019
