Carlene Uzel and Amber Colby of Chester, graduated from the 2013 Governor’s School of Agriculture held at Virginia Tech on June 30 to July 27.

Uzel and Colby, seniors at Thomas Dale High School, were two of only 100 rising junior and senior high school students from across the commonwealth selected to participate in the month-long summer residential program for gifted students interested in agriculture and natural resources.

The program was developed in 2001 to provide hands-on, cutting-edge, scientific, and academic instruction to future leaders and scientists to promote their understanding of the scope, opportunities, and challenges, through academic and scientific rigor of the broad fields of agriculture, human health, natural resources, and veterinary medicine.
