National Leadership.

Picture of Mary Grace Hill (Right) and Carrie Hill (Left), with General Tommy Thomson, USAF Ret. (Middle). This was taken at the Harding University National Leadership Forum. General Thomson was one of the speaker at the Forum. We had a blast and learned many leadership skills that we hope to bring back to our community. It was an amazing experience, one that I will not forget. I thank Farm Bureau for allowing my cousin and myself to attend.

Sincerely
Mary Grace Hill
