Katie Campuzano-Gomez, a Polk County High School graduate majoring in Horticulture Science at North Carolina State, has been invited to attend The Global Food Systems Sustainable Agriculture Practices and Culture program that is traveling to Ireland and Northern Ireland in May. 

Study abroad programs offer students the unique opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the connections between the United States and their host countries. Program participants will gain interdisciplinary perspectives on emerging issues facing global food systems, emphasizing livestock management, crop production, and agritourism in both Ireland and Northern Ireland. They will have the opportunity to tour a variety of farms and attend the annual Balmoral Farm Show, and work with agriculture specialists at the University College in Dublin.  

The Farm Bureau board of directors awarded Katie $1,500 to go towards her study abroad travels and congratulates Campuzano-Gomez, wishing her safe travels.
