Poultry Ambassador Is Sister To Last Year’s Poultry Queen

Michelle is especially looking
forward to helping with Ag in the
Classroom. In this program, she
will tell children about raising
chickens, turkeys, and eggs and the
importance of including these pro
ducts in their diets.
Michelle is a peppy, enthusias
tic teen-ager who recently has had
to make major adjustments to her
schedule. She tore a knee ligament
during a school volleyball match
on September 1. The tear will
require total ligament reconstruc
tion surgery, which means no
sports for probably nine to 12
months. That means that Michelle
can no longer play volleyball
although she can continue her
responsibilities as team captain.
se goose gourds may not be considered bona-fide
poultry, but Michelle promotes them at the family’s produce
stand. Her mother Lucy dresses some to sell and others are
sold plain for customers to dress or display.

advantages. Michelle said that she
can’t pick pumpkins for the fami
ly’s produce stand.
During the growing season, she,
her two sisters, and several other
teens pick cucumbers, peppers,
zucchini, green beans, com, canta
loupes, and watermelons from the

pumpkin season is in full swing,
but Michele can’t bend to pick up
the pumpkins and carry them.

injury far outweigh the advan-

to keep a positive attitude despite
the adjustments.
With less time to spend on
sports, Michelle will have more
time to study and achieve her goal
of graduating cum laude in the
