School news
Brittany Bowman has been named a finalist in the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation’s annual Young Farmers Discussion Meet competition at the organization’s annual convention in Hot Springs.

This year’s topic was “American agriculture depends on a foreign-born labor force – how would you draft a national immigration policy?” Contestants were judged on discussion skills, understanding of important agricultural issues and how well they built a consensus. She won $500.

Bowman, a 2013 graduate of Stonewall Jackson High School, is a senior at Virginia Tech majoring in dairy science.
