Josh Pruitt, second from left, socializes with fellow Kentucky Farm Bureau Outstanding Youth participant Alex Pogue, while Leigha Phelps and Cody Brown talk before delivering their speeches.
Pruitt is an admitted overachiever as president of Kentucky 4-H and a top student at his school. "My ultimate goal would be U.S. senator," said Pruitt of Madisonville. "President...I don't know. If I was I would be the first one from Kentucky since Illinois is trying to steal Abe Lincoln from us."
