Area students appointed to Nebraska youth council

Friday, December 28, 2012

LINCOLN, Nebraska -- The Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) today announced the selection of the members of the 2012-2013 Nebraska Agricultural Youth Council (NAYC).

The NAYC is entering its 42nd year with the installation of the new Council members. This year's Council is comprised of 19 college-aged men and women that exhibit a passion for agriculture and educating others about the agricultural industry.

The Council is responsible for coordinating several agricultural learning experiences for Nebraska youth including: visiting elementary classrooms to discuss where food comes from, taking urban youth to experience farms and what a day in the life of a farmer is like and visiting with high school students from across the state. The primary focus of the NAYC is to coordinate the annual Nebraska Agricultural Youth Institute (NAYI), a five-day conference for current high school juniors and seniors.

According to NDA Public Information Officer and NAYC Adviser Christin Kamm, "The members of the NAYC each exhibit a passion for the agricultural industry and a desire to educate others about agriculture. The effort put forth by these young adults is inspiring, and I look forward to seeing this year's Council members implement new ideas and educate even more people about agriculture."

2012 -- 2013 Council Members include:

* Steven Fish is the son of Mark and Kathy Christensen of Imperial.

* Larissa Wach is the daughter of Loran and Nancy Wach of Wauneta.
