"Before I attended the Governor's School for Agriculture, I had never really considered a career in agriculture. After the program, I feel more interested in the field as a whole. Here, I also learned how important the agriculture field is to society and also how many different careers are available in agriculture."- Catie Beckhorn, Class of 2013
