What is your favorite aspect of agriculture? “I love being part of a family farm and helping with whatever needs to be done whether that’s helping with the kids or feeding cattle or haying or whatever.”

Who is the most influential person in your life? “Right now my FFA advisor and ag teacher, Johnny Harp, is the most influential because he teaches me about my hog, electricity and all of the different aspects of agriculture. He guides me in picking out my feed and how much to provide daily as well as teaching me how to show. Two things he has discussed with me are always being on the opposite side of the hog from the judge so you don’t block the judge’s view and to have eye contact with the judge.”

What is your current involvement in agriculture? In addition to working daily on the farm, I also have a Hampshire hog that I show and have won first in my class. In FFA my hog is my project but I also have been in flora culture competitions as well as parliamentary procedure ones. My first competition in flora culture was my favorite because it was the first time I was around so many people and because I learned how competition works. I have a competitive nature and like seeing how good I can be in my current competition but also always enjoy meeting new people. I have won the FFA hay/forage and horse production awards. I am currently vice president of my chapter.

What is your favorite possession? “I really cherish my childhood pictures because they are something that cannot be replaced.”

What are your future plans? “While I like the idea of being a veterinarian, there may be too much schooling. I will start out earning an ag business degree to see and get experience in the different aspects of agriculture and then make a more knowledgeable choice.”
