Will Duffie (l), an agricultural regional sales coordinator with Monsanto and Keith, Elise and Candler Boyett (r-l) recently presented Bulloch Academy Head of School Leisa Houghton with a check for $2,500 from the America’s Farmer Grow Communities Program. The program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, supports local farming communities. It allows farmers to register to win $2,500 for their favorite community nonprofit organizations. One winner was selected in each of 1,245 eligible counties in 39 states. The Boyett family lives in Bulloch County but owns an approximately 900-acre farming operation in Candler County. Candler is a seventh grader at the school and sister Candice graduated from BA in 2011.
