HURON – Shaun Snedeker, of Woonsocket, son of Mark and Lisa Snedeker, was one of the rural youth recognized for their commitment to community and leadership skills with the Torchbearer Award during an awards banquet at the 2016 S.D. Farmers Union State Convention, held in Pierre, Dec. 8-9.
Torchbearer is the highest level for South Dakota Farmers Union Education Achievement.

A special thanks to their families whom supported this process and ensured campers were able to attend camp and other activities.

We appreciate these youth and their families who have invested in this program and are dedicated to the traditions and skills the program embeds in the students,” said S.D.
