HORACE — The North Dakota Farmers Union awarded the Torchbearer Award, its highest youth achievement award, to Koral Salisbury, of Horace, at NDFU's recent state convention in Bismarck.
The award recognizes students for their involvement in Farmers Union's youth education program. This entails five years of senior class work designed to improve communication, leadership and teamwork skills, along with business knowledge of cooperatives.
Sixteen young people accepted the award during a candlelight ceremony. As Torchbearers, they strive to build a better world for all and a prosperous agriculture, while practicing tolerance and brotherhood in order to "Light the way to a peaceful world," as stated by the Torchbearer pledge.
