"Part of the VALOR program focus is leading the Fellows on a journey of discovery. Not only discovery of what agriculture is throughout the various areas in Virginia, but also a journey of personal discovery. What is it that drives you? Why do you do what you do how you do it? What does the future look like in your mind when you close your eyes? How are you going to get there?"
Thank you to our Donors & Sponsors for investing in our program operations and our mission to develop leaders in agriculture.
