Congratulations to Rebekah Spaniol, a Lewisburg Middle School 7th grader, for placing second in the Farm Bureau Women’s county-wide essay contest. In response to the theme, “Why is Agriculture Important?,” Rebekah explained, “The exposure to farm animals and other agricultural work can boost your immune system.” She further emphasized that “kids who have grown up on farms have fewer asthma and respiratory problems” and stressed the importance of agriculture in making medicines. Who knew agriculture could impact our health in so many ways?
