November 1, 2018

Evan Henning of Thornton and Lacey Miller of Ritzville have been selected to serve as the Washington Association of Wheat Growers ambassadors for the upcoming year. They were selected after an initial written application process that included submitting a short introductory video.

They will each be giving a speech at the upcoming Washington Association of Wheat Growers annual awards banquet Nov. 15, during the Tri-State Grain Growers Convention in Portland.

The seniors will be judged on the quality of their presentation, and at the conclusion of the banquet, scholarships funded by the Washington Wheat Foundation of $2,500 and $2,000 will be awarded.

Miller and Henning will represent Washington wheat farmers at various civic and community events and will also participate in an advocacy trip to Olympia with WAWG leaders.
