Summer vacation may be only beginning for most students, but for 92 high school juniors the emphasis on education continues. These students, from 60 counties across the state, have accepted invitations to attend Kentucky Farm Bureau’s (KFB) 29th annual Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders (IFAL), held in two locations this month.

IFAL is a unique five-day summer leadership conference that highlights a variety of careers in agriculture while exposing high school students to a preview of college life. Participants were nominated by their county Farm Bureau board of directors with the assistance of school personnel and youth group advisors.

To provide conference participants with a small-group atmosphere and greater ability to learn and engage in the activities planned, IFAL is split into two identical sessions. The first was held on the campus of Murray State University, June 15 - 19, and the other is hosted at the University of Kentucky, June 22 - 26. The MSU conference was attended by Kayla Tyler of Trigg County.
