Quimby participates in Service Day Ag students attend Missouri Farm Bureau attend Youth Leadership Day It was a busy day for 425 high school students and their chaperones who were involved in the Missouri Farm Bureau Youth Lead- ership Day April 14, 2016. For 22 years, the event has brought students and their legislators together at the State Capitol. Youth Lead- ership Day is sponsored by the Missouri Farm Bureau Promotion and Education. Students were able to vis- it when both the House and Senate chambers were in session. Some groups chat- ted with their senators and representatives in hallways just ouside the chambers. Others were introduced from the House and Senate floors. In many ways, the visitors found out how hec- tic and important the busi- ness of lawmaking can be. By the busload, the group returned to Missouri Farm Bureau headquarters for lunch and a MFB welcome by Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst. They also heard from University of Missouri students and Farm Bureau Ambassadors Austin Stanton of Centralia and Nora Faris of Concor- dia before a special talk by featured speaker Saman- tha Warner. Warner stated that almost everything is connected to what she calls Team Agriculture. “There are so many different op- tions in agriculture...Fol- low your passion, find your place, and find a place on the Agriculture Team that fits your passion.” Students attending from Atchison County were Tarkio students Ethan Riley, Karlly Eyman, and Kris Riley with advisor Dustin Lambertsen, as well as Fairfax students Gage Crowley and Alyssa Beck with advisor Jeremy Palmer. Costs for the school trip are underwritten by county Farm Bureaus and the MFB Foundation for Ag- riculture.

(Submitted Photo) By Lea Peregrine Meet the fun loving, all around goofy senior girl, Candace Campbell! If you really know her, you already know that her favorite ex- pression is “Seriously?” Candace is the daughter of Jason and Ruth Campbell of Tarkio. Candace has one sibling, Dylan, who is a fifth grader at Tarkio Elemen- tary. Candace wanted to mention her grandmother, Becky Campbell, too. She also wanted to give a shout- out to Jordyn Swalley, Ally Harkrider, and Paige Agnew, her best friends. I asked her if she wanted to include any- one else and she said her dog, Max. She just can’t get over how much he loves to escape from his pen. Candace has been in the Tarkio R-I School District since she was in Honey Tree at the Tarkio United Methodist Church. She has played a huge role in our class from the very begin- ning. Most of our class mem- ories are because of her! Speaking of memories, Can- dace states that her favor- ite childhood memory was helping her grandma Becky cook delicious food. Candace has been involved in the lo- cal Special Olympics team, The Shining Stars, for four years. She enjoys playing basketball and is successful in her track event, throw- ing. She likes to brag about all the medals she receives after kickin’ butt. Candace can be found rocking out to her favorite singer, Justin Bieber. She even got the opportunity to see J.B. perform live a few weeks back. She recalls it was the “greatest time of her life.” Candace and her best friend, Jordan, like to hang- out on their free days and play dolls until the sun sets. She also told me that she likes to write in her diary when she is by herself. Can- dace is just like any modern- day teenage girl who enjoys her favorite television shows and movies. She likes to “hang out” with Sheldon and Penny while watching her favorite T.V. show, The Big Bang Theory. Her favorite movie is Brats and of course her favorite kind of music is any music that comes from Justin Bieber. Candace likes to munch down on mashed potatoes while watching the K.C. Royals or K.C. Chiefs with her dad. She has al- ways been about reading and her favorite series is the Goosebump books. Even though scary movies gives her goosebumps, she doesn’t mind scaring herself while reading a good book. Can- dace couldn’t pick out a fa- vorite memory from high school because she has way too many. After a few ex- amples, she decided that the Justin Bieber concert was her all time favorite (go fig- ure). She will also never for- get the time when her best guy friend, Connor Shaw, asked her to her senior prom. She told me that that was a dream come true. Talk- ing about Connor, her most embarrassing moments are when her best friend Jordan teases her about Connor. Candace’s plans after high school are still unde- cided, but she is looking for- ward to graduation. After talking about the last few days of her senior year slow- ing down, she was all smiles Seriously? Having fun with Candace Campbell and said she was nervous, but excited. I asked Candace about some very irrelevent questions to get some funny responses out of her. • “Painting or coloring?” “Coloring because it’s fun” • “Would you ever want to be on the Big Bang The- ory?” “Yes, because I could hang out with Penny (her favorite character).” • “Would you rather eat worms or broccoli (broccoli is her least favorite food)?” “I would much rather eat gummy worms.” • “What are you looking forward to during Senior Trip?” “Riding Fire in the Hole - It’s scary but fun.” • “Would you ever date Justin Bieber? “Yes, duh Lea!” Now you guys know al- most everything about Can- dy Lou. You can see her walk down the aisle during the graduation ceremony with a huge smile on her face. We wish you the best of luck after graduation, Candace, and can’t wait to spend the last few days with you be- fore Senior Trip! Congratu- lations Senior!
