Kaitlin Van Horn is a senior and Beth Holland a sophomore at Morris Area High School. As FFA members, they do a lot of activities and projects intended to educate the broader community about modern agriculture.

I made this video at the Stevens County Fair FFA Kiddie Barn a few weeks ago as they were taking two young children through the activities in various "mini-barns" that helped teach kids about where their food comes from and educated them about the farming business. Kaitlin and Beth also talked about education, life in Morris and the effects of the current economy on career prospects in the agriculture industry.
