Ag. commissioner visits Clark FFA, 4-H students

Kentucky’s agriculture commissioner stopped in Winchester Monday to promote the state’s farm license plates.

Annual renewals of the specialty plate include a $10 donation, which is split evenly between FFA, 4-H, Kentucky Proud and other state agriculture programs, Commissioner Ryan Quarles said.

“Today is about you all — 4-H and FFA,” Quarles told a group of Clark County students Monday morning.

Quarles said the license plate renewals generated $630,000 in 2017, which was divided among the specified agencies.

“This is a win-win-win for Kentucky agriculture,” he said.

Clark County FFA advisor Terra Pigg and Clark County 4-H Youth Development Agent Heather Cassill said the revenue helps fund trips or other opportunities for students.
