Through agriculture, she has been actively participating in the National Junior Swine Association and the Pennsylvania Club Livestock Association.
Alaina has been intrigued by what 4-H and FFA Programs can provide. She has made many friends along the way and has learned that dedication and hard work and time management are what it takes to be a productive member of society. She has had many opportunities to serve the community and one of her greatest privileges is placing the flags on Kingsley Cemetery.
