Kylie Bruce wins AFBF Collegiate Discussion Meet

Franklin County Farm Bureau member Kylie Bruce won the 2019 American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) Collegiate Discussion Meet, held during the AFBF Fusion Conference March 15-18 in Milwaukee. As the national winner, Bruce won a $3,000 scholarship from the CHS Foundation.

Bruce, who qualified as Georgia top collegiate competitor in the GFB Young Farmers & Ranchers Discussion Meet last July, competed with Samantha Ludlam of Michigan, Coty Vannoy of Tennessee and Chandler Vaughan of Virginia in the Final Four, during which they addressed how agriculture and Farm Bureau can attract people from Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) into agricultural careers.. 

The discussion meet is intended to simulate a committee meeting during which agriculturalists talk about issues affecting agriculture.

Bruce is a sophomore at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. During high school she served as a local, area and state FFA officer.
