Lexi Broe and Chris Fedje, Rugby, recently received the Torchbearer Award in Pierce County through the North Dakota Farmers Union.

Broe is the daughter of Dale and Mary Ann Broe. Fedje is the son of Andy and Deanne Fedje.

The Torchbearer Award is the highest honor that senior youth may achieve in Farmers Union. Youth must complete five consecutive years of senior youth work to be eligible for this award. North Dakota Farmers Union President Robert Carlson lit the candle of each Torchbearer as they crossed the stage during the ceremony.

"I am very proud of this year's 52 Torchbearers for their commitment to become leaders and outstanding citizens in their community," NDFU Member Education Coordinator Josh Norby told the crowd at the ceremony. "By attending county meetings, day classes, summer camps and award trips, they have developed the skills to build a strong future for Farmers Union.

This year, more than 1,200 youth in grades 3-12 attended Farmers Union camps and award trips, and more than 1,000 completed day class work.
