What is your involvement in agriculture?

“I do a lot when it comes to ag and FFA. I have been in ag for four years and have learned how to do so many different things. I am the president of our FFA officer team and have loved being a part of a great family. I have learned how to weld, smoke meats. 

“I have gotten my hunters and boaters ed license. I am a part of the Farm Bureau as well. Another thing I have learned how to do is build signs out of metal. I have also competed at Ag Day at the fair for the past four years.”

What is your favorite part of being involved in agriculture/living on a farm? 

“I really enjoy being a leader and helping other people when I can. That’s one of the main reasons I wanted to become an FFA officer was to be an example. I also really enjoy the meeting we have here at school with all the FFA members.”

What are your future plans? 

“I plan to attend college when I graduate high school. I have to finish my military training this summer 2022, then I’ll be going straight to college in August. I plan to become part of the ag department at Arkansas State, and I also plan on being in as many clubs as I can but also have time to work and keep up my studies.”

What is the best advice about agriculture you have received from adults? 

“A wise man (Mr. Anderson) once  said, ‘If you wanna be a winner, present yourself as a winner. Also don’t wear baggy clothes in the shop cause bad things can happen”
