This is one of Tehama County Farm Bureau’s many ways of giving back to the youth in the community.
“By helping the youth from our community succeed in their studies we are helping to better their lives and provide them with the needed education to better the lives around them with their future careers,” said Kari Dodd, Tehama County Farm Bureau manager.
