Education on Target 

March 23, 2018

Did you know that the LSU College of Agriculture offers at least 40 majors for students aiming to succeed in life?  But it takes a lot of time, work and money to get that education. That's where the Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation's Sporting Clays Challenge comes in to help pay for classroom materials through the Louisiana Ag In The Classroom Program and fund scholarships for students going to college.  TWILA's Avery Davidson takes us to Shreveport, where shooters are aiming high for a great cause.
