Louisiana Ag and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain visited ICCS in Lake Charles on Friday.

He was there not only to inspire the children but also to honor Harper Darbonne, a third grader at ICCS, with a $1,000 scholarship for her cabbage plant, which was deemed the largest in the state in a recent contest.

All of the students at ICCS were sworn in by Strain as "junior commissioners." The students also received individual badges.

"You have to promise -- look at me -- to eat your vegetables everyday! Yes, eat them up. Listen to your parents. Listen to your teachers," said Strain during the swearing in ceremony.
