What is your involvement in agriculture? 

“I am currently involved in the Galena FFA Chapter. For the 2023-2024 school year I will be serving as the chapter president. I am also the Area 12 Chaplain. My Supervised Agriculture Experience is poultry production. I started out by incubating and hatching three laying hens and a rooster. In the past year, I have incubated several more and also invested in more chicks. I have now grown my flock to 22 laying hens and one rooster. I also raise and sell chicks to members in my community.”

What is your favorite part of being involved in agriculture? 

“The vast amount of people I get to socialize with and meet. I enjoy getting to see all the different people that come from different backgrounds than myself. It’s truly amazing to see how just one broad community of people can unite and work together the way the agriculture industry does.”

What are your future plans? 

“After I graduate high school, I plan to attend Crowder College for two years and attend their veterinary technician program. After my time at Crowder, I want to attend the University of Missouri-Columbia for my undergraduate degree. After undergrad, I plan to attend the University of Missouri-Columbia’s Veterinary Medicine School. I want to eventually become a large animal veterinarian and open my own veterinary clinic/animal rescue.”
