I can recall when I realized I had a deep passion for the FFA. It was October of my freshman year, and my best friend and I were planning to go to national convention together. I was ecstatic, but then the day we were leaving, my friend backed out. I was devastated; she was the only person I knew going on the trip, and now I was alone.


To my surprise, that five-day trip was life changing. I made new lifelong friends, experienced amazing things on many different tours such as hog and dairy farms, as well as the inspiring sessions. That was the week that the FFA organization became my second family.


I am currently serving as chapter president for the Wayne FFA and as the south central district reporter. Through my involvement in FFA I have been able to grow and learn in many different aspects. Public speaking has helped me to better understand how to voice my opinion and educate others about agriculture. 


FFA has guided me to find my passion for agriculture and also to discover where my future leads. Ag education teaches young people much more than the basics of agriculture. They get involved with diverse experiences, grow their own abilities and develop their full potential.
