Kayla Miller, Archbold, is one of 17 farmers and agribusiness professionals who will participate in the Ohio Farm Bureau 2019- 2020 AgriPOWER Institute.
The goal of the yearlong training program is to help participants become community leaders and advocates for agriculture.
Miller is the 4-H Youth Development Extension educator in Fulton County. She and her family have a grain operation.
She’s an active member of the Young Ag Professionals group in Defiance, Fulton, Henry and Williams counties.
Miller is a graduate of the Fulton Leadership University, vice president of the 4-H Camp Palmer Board of Trustees, and on the Delta Ag Program advisory committee.
Participants will attend multiple sessions to learn about public policy matters important to their communities as well as the state of Ohio, nation and world.
They will develop skills to become effective leaders and advocates, including spokesperson and media training, etiquette training, social networking, communications and more.
One session will take place in Washington, D.C., to give participants a better understanding of national and global issues, and another out of state, so they can learn about the differences and similarities in agriculture from state to state.
