Posted: Monday, Jul 1st, 2013

Aiden Beck and Dayton Trujillo

Aidan Beck of Huron and Dayton Trujillo of De Smet have been elected to serve on the South Dakota Farmers Union’s Junior Advisory Council for 2013-2014.

Beck and Trujillo are two of six youth elected by their peers to the council during the family farm organization’s annual state leadership camp June 2-7 at Storm Mountain Center near Rapid City. A number of eligible campers who have finished at least their junior year of high school run for a spot on the six-person council.

“I’m incredibly proud of Aidan, Dayton and all of the young people on the council,” said South Dakota Farmers Union state education director Bonnie Geyer. “It’s an honor for them and their families and we’re proud to have such great young leaders who have chosen to be part of the Farmers Union family.”

Beck will enter his sophomore year at the University of South Dakota this fall. A 2012 graduate of Huron High School, he is the son of Bret and Julie Beck.

Dayton Trujillo will be a senior this fall at De Smet High School. He’s the son of Kathy Trujillo. Other members of the Junior Advisory Council are Brooke Enright of Union Center, Jackie Dethlefsen of Stickney, Tucker Greene of Plankinton, and Chris Nemec of Holabird.

As part of the Junior Advisory Council, Beck and Trujillo will organize and facilitate the 2014 Farmers Union state leadership camp and attend several Farmers Union functions including Farmers Union Day at the South Dakota State Fair and the Farmers Union state convention.

“It’s a wonderful leadership opportunity for our young people,” Geyer said. “It allows them a chance to take hold of Farmers Union camp and learn leadership strategies that will make them successful during the week of camp and learn skills they’ll take with them the rest of their lives.”

South Dakota Farmers Union’s state leadership camp is held each year in the Black Hills. The weeklong camp brings nearly 100 young people ages 13-19 together for a week of cooperative education, leadership training and traditional camp activities.
