  • She’s Country

    “She’s Country.”
    That was the theme for the 2014 Marion County Distinguished Young Woman program, and it describes this year’s winner, Bailey Spalding, to a tee.
    She’s grown up enjoying her “Pepaw’s” farm in Arbuckle, she studied agri-business during the Governor’s Scholars Program this summer and she’s taking several agriculture courses during her senior year at Marion County High School.
    Heck, she’s even preg-checked a cow.
    It doesn’t get any more country than that.
