Campbellsville High School leadership students recently spent a day learning about agriculture.

Students participating in the school's leadership program for the 2016-2017 school year recently took tours of several farms in the community.


Gregg Williams of Riverside Farms gave the students a tour of his dairy farm.

Chad Sullivan and Ronnie Sullivan of Sullivan Farms showed the students around their beef farm. While there, local veterinarian Dr. Ben Cox spoke to students about caring for animals, food safety and animal welfare.

After eating lunch, which was sponsored by Taylor County Farm Bureau Federation, students toured the Reynolds Farm and learned about being a grain farmer from owners Mike and Tyler Reynolds.

In the leadership program, students participate in programs to help them learn teamwork, leadership and other skills.

CHS juniors chosen to participate include Cass Kidwell, Chanson Atkinson, Kayla Young, Wyatt Houk, Alex Doss, Madison Dial, Ryan Wiedewitsch, Caitlin Bright, Connor Wilson, Bryce Richardson, Sara Farmer, Kim Harden and Missy Vanorder.

David Petett, director of district programs and transportation director, leads the program.
