“My favorite is seeing my accomplishments grow right in front of me. I am also very proud to be a member of the FFA.”
What are your future plans?

What is the best advice about agriculture you have received?
“My nursery advisor, Mrs. Hutton, has told me many times not the sweat the small stuff. She has taught me that without my ‘off days’ I would not have any improvements.”
