The Cayman Islands Agricultural Society’s 2017 Cayman Farm Queen is John Gray High School student Leticia Francis Bush, 15. Leticia was crowned at the Agriculture Show in Lower Valley last month.

Along with recognizing that agriculture means having healthy and organic food, she noted that it is important for preserving and teaching youth about Cayman’s environment and culture. ‘In addition to locally grown crops and livestock, we are able to have a healthier lifestyle and better tasting foods,’ she said.

Leticia is pictured with first runner-up Kevie-Ann Pierre and second runner-up Taneil Lee. Sage Costa was third runner-up and winner of Best Written Agriculture essay.
