Young fairgoers have often asked “Freddy”, that giant farm boy sitting on the porch of the Kentucky State Fair, what he does for a regular job. The answer might be “help send young people to college.” With funds raised by being the voice of Freddy Farm Bureau, and volunteering at efforts like the upcoming PGA tournament, the Louisville AG Club provides scholarships to young people attending college in the pursuit of ag careers. Three annual awards were announced, going to students from Taylorsville, LaGrange and Finchville.
