Adelaide-DyerFFA, $5000, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Agricultural Communications

Adelaide Dyer grew up on a 200-acre ranch in Alpine. While maintaining a GPA of 4.37 at El Capitan High School, she has been actively involved in FFA, varsity cheerleading and ASB. Adelaide has been saving for college since fourth grade when she began raising market animals; among them breeding cows, diary heifers, market steers and pigs. “Being involved in agriculture has taught me how to be responsible and to master time management,” says this future agricultural lobbyist who plans to major in agricultural communications at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
