Luke Fevold

 

When I first joined FFA, I did it because that's what you do if you're part of the Fevold family. My grandfather, father and brother had all been active FFA members, holding various offices and competing in multiple contests. My duty to join quickly changed into appreciation for the organization.

 

Whether it is learning parliamentary procedure or livestock judging, FFA has something to offer to everyone. FFA has helped enhance my leadership skills, public speaking and networking. These are invaluable lifelong skills that I will use in my career. The perception that FFA is an organization to join if you're pursuing a career in agriculture is far from the truth. In fact, I am not thinking of an agricultural career, but I know the lifelong skills will serve me well in the future.

 

I serve as the Nevada FFA chapter president and the north central district treasurer. It was an honor to be elected to both offices. The election process taught me how to humbly promote myself and deliver speeches. It has also allowed me to meet many new people, attend leadership training and serve as a role model for other members. One of my favorite parts of FFA is meeting new people. I have met members from other towns at county fairs, other officers at Chapter Officer Leadership Training and from all over the country at Washington Leadership Conference. 

 

FFA has been an invaluable part of my life and I can not express how much it has meant to me. Even though I am not planning a career in agriculture, I beleive that the speaking and leadership skills are going to help me exponentially. I hope that all kids will have the opportunity to join FFA and gain the same life skills I have.
