Dollarway High School freshman, Rikkya Britten, was selected to attend the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Ag Discovery Program at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff this summer.


AgDiscovery is a summer outreach program to help teenagers explore careers in plant and animal science, wildlife management, agribusiness and other subjects, according to a news release.


The program allows students to live on a college campus and learn about agriculture from experts. The event is from 2 to 4 weeks.


“The Dollarway Community wishes to congratulate Rikkya on her acceptance into the program,” a spokesman said.
