Dimock student to join Farmers Union advisory council

Myles Bialas

Myles Bialas, of Dimock, has been selected to serve on the South Dakota Farmers Union’s Senior Advisory Council for 2014.

Bialas is a freshman at South Dakota State University majoring in agronomy and is the son of Craig and Stacey Bialas from Dimock.

To run for the Senior Advisory Council, an individual must have received their Torchbearer Award, which is the highest honor one can receive as a young person in Farmers Union. A number of eligible Torchbearers run for a spot on the two-person council and are selected based on their leadership skills, interaction with their peers and other individuals and their overall participation in activities. As part of the Senior Advisory Council, Bialas will serve as an adviser to the Junior Advisory Council and serve on the Education Council as a youth representative. He will also assist in organizing and facilitating the 2014 Farmers Union State Leadership Camp and will attend several Farmers Union functions, including Farmers Union Day at the South Dakota State Fair and the Farmers Union State Convention.
