Governor’s School for Agriculture (GSA) has opened up a ton of new opportunities that would not have otherwise been available. The first week of GSA was a week full of learning. One of our first classes was on the topic of soils, which may not sound that exciting, but the professor, Tim Durham, who was from Ferrum College, made it very interesting and interactive.
We also had a program fashion show at the beginning of the first week to show what to do and what not to do for the dress code. I had volunteered to dress up for the role of the “Casual Incorrect.” As a spoof on the “Country Boy” title I had acquired, I chose to wear cowboy boots, with American flag-style swim trunks, and an American flag-style button-down shirt. The song I had chosen to walk out on stage to was “Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd. It was awesome to walk out onto the stage to the good old tunes of a song that has been played far and wide through my hometown.
