I didn't realize what FFA truly was until I served on the district nominating committee in February of my freshman year. I was excited to be in the chapter, but I hadn't worked with anyone above that level. Sitting on the nominating committee with the state president made me realize that I had a lot of fantastic opportunities down the road for me through the organization, and trust me, I have taken hold of every one of them. I have been able to work in six different SAE areas; each of them have given me more of an idea of what the agricultural industry has to offer.

 

Currently, I am serving as my chapter president and was elected to serve as the North Central district reporter. This has allowed me to grow as an individual by working with others and helping expand their knowledge in the field of agriculture. I also competed in Prepared Public Speaking and will have the opportunity of a lifetime sharing my story and speech at the National FFA Convention and Expo.

 

The people I have met along the way have become some of my best friends, and I can say that I have friends in all four corners of our great state. It's the people we interact with now that will make a difference later in our lives.

 

Agricultural education is important to me because the students who go through an ag classroom in high school will be the next generation of agriculturalists. We need these students to succeed because we will be dependent on them in the future. Agricultural education allows students to be involved in the classroom, in supervised agricultural experiences and grow their potential through FFA.
