Pollok named Outstanding Young Agriculturalist
DRY FORK, Va. — Megan Pollok has a voice, and she’s using it to describe her outlook for Virginia’s agricultural future.
The Pittsylvania County resident was named the 2020 Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Outstanding Young Agriculturalist on Aug. 1 during the VFBF Young Farmers Summer Expo.
The recognition program is organized by the VFBF Young Farmers Committee and honors high school juniors and seniors for academic, community and agribusiness achievement.
Pollok is the daughter of Robert Pollok and Inez Rodenburg and a graduate of Tunstall High School and plans to pursue a degree in crop and soil environmental science at Virginia Tech this fall. She is involved with operations at Hill View Farms Inc., where her family produces beef cattle and certified seed. Pollok works closely with her father on crop production.
