The West Texas Young Farmers recently made donations of $1,000 to each of the three Terry County school districts. President of WTYFA Kirk Martin stated, “We wanted to help the Ag programs out in these schools, and this is a way we could do this.”
He stated that Wellman-Union is building a greenhouse, Meadow is building fire pits to sell for a fund raiser, and Brownfield is doing some chicken hatchery with these funds.
The West Texas Young Farmers is a group of, just what it says, young farmers. These guys get together and talk about issues facing the ag industry today. They often have government officials as special guests. Most recently, they met with Jodey Arrington and his staff at Reddy Vineyards, where they were able to air their concerns to Rep. Arrington. They do many public service projects and offer scholarships to graduating seniors each year.
They also are well known for their cooking skills and have catered many events in Terry County.
The officers include:
President – Kirk Martin
Vice-President – Brad Cudd
Secretary – Garrett Besler
Treasurer – Lexi Floyd
Reporter – Reese Rowden
A great group of guys who are all outstanding in their fields!
