Several Bandera County students participated in Texas Farm Bureau’s Student Success Series this summer. The program featured both in-person and virtual experiences for students in eighth through twelfth grade.
As part of the Student Success Series, students completed modules in four different programs based on age: Jumpstart, Activate, Engage and Thrive. The modules are designed to help students grow their leadership skills, provide professional development, and increase their understanding of agriculture and Farm Bureau.
“Our future depends on Bandera County students like those who participated in Farm Bureau’s Student Success Series,” Bandera County Farm Bureau President Booker Young said. “They learned more about themselves, developed a better understanding of advocacy and some even identified new passions.”
The Activate program was for students entering ninth grade in August. Four students participated in the virtual experience, which covered professionalism and career exploration. Students were also challenged to create a plan for leaving a legacy and learned more about TFB.
A total of 387 students across the state participated in the Student Success Series, and each student who completed the modules will receive prizes.
Hallie Kunz successfully completed all the modules in Activate to receive a free TFB t-shirt and other TFB swag. She received a Certificate of Completion for her hard work.
