Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The Indiana State Fair holds a very special place for one local family this year. After a decade this is the final year for their eldest child to take part in the 4H program.
The Lewis' show cattle at the annual fair in Indianapolis. It's something their parents say has helped teach their two children so much about responsibility.
"When you have to actually, you have something out in the barn that depends on you and you have to come out and feed and water it, and take care of it and clean it, that teaches a kid a lot right there," said Randy Lewis, Ashley's father.
Their eldest daughter has been showing at the fair for 10 years and their son has been taking part for 7 years. Now their daughter Ashley is ready to take her experience to the real world.
"By being in 4H and learning the lessons about being outside and working with livestock, has kinda made me realize that agriculture is something I want to stay in and that has helped me to decide to study horticulture," said Ashley Lewis, 4H Participant.
Ashley plans to further her education at Purdue University.
