Quote regarding her participation in VALOR: I am excited to be a member of the third class of VALOR by networking with other agricultural leaders across the Commonwealth and gain a greater understanding of the Agriculture Industry, not only here in VA but across the globe. I am looking forward to being a part of this outstanding group and sharing these experiences in my classroom and community.
