Welcome to Class IV

The Virginia Agriculture Leaders Obtaining Results Program (VALOR), initiated fellowship participants with an orientation agenda held on the Virginia Tech campus September 21-23, 2018.  Welcome remarks were given by Bettina Ring, Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry, and Jewel Bronaugh, Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services.




VALOR represents a unique opportunity to blend study of the agricultural industry with the leadership skills and network needed to address many important issues facing the industry and our society.
