Foodways Fresh-faced Farmhands

The Foodways program has just taken three fresh, new faces into its fold. Please, help us welcome them to the Hindman Settlement School team!

Kyle Amburgey

Kyle Amburgey is spending the summer with the Hindman Settlement School Food ways program as a farm intern. He is most excited about learning about agricultural techniques and putting in some hard work on the farm. Throughout High School, Kyle has excelled in both the mental and physical activities in school. He was an avid member of the archery team and bass fishing team at Knott County High, as well as, a member of the National Honors Society. However, Kyle’s devotion did not stop there. He was a member of the beta club; a group determined to improve the community. Kyle hopes to continue his long-standing career of devotion at Morehead State University where he will train to become a State Police Officer, destined to serve his community once more.


Seth Ritchie

Seth Ritchie will be joining the Hindman Settlement School Foodways program as a farm intern for the duration of the summer. Seth is most eager to learn the farm as well as he learned his course curriculum. During his time at Knott County High, Seth was a member of the National Honors Society and used his work ethic to rise to the top of his class as valedictorian. In the midst of all of his work, Seth managed to still give back to his community through his involvement with the beta club. Seth spent his spare time aiming down arrows in archery and up the corporate ladder as a future business leader of America. Now, Seth sets his sights on space systems engineering at Morehead State University where he will continue to reach for the stars just as he always has.


Olivia Harp

Olivia Harp will be spending a year with the Hindman Settlement School as a community agriculture support VISTA. Olivia was part of the drama club throughout High School, but she threw in the costumes to pursue more dramatic changes at Hazard Community and Technical College. There, she studies human services and hopes to use her education to propel the community through agricultural experiences and involvement. She hopes to one day take what she has learned here at the Settlement School to Lindsey Wilson College where she will finish a bachelor’s degree. After graduation, Olivia plans to use her passion for agriculture to inform and enhance the community in any way she possibly can.
