About Caleb Green
My name is Caleb Green and I'm rolling out of Section 2 as one of your State Vice Presidents! I never grew up on a farm, and lived in town for most of my life. Through my four years of High School, I was involved in FFA, Math Team, and Science Olympiad. I was also a three sport athlete in Football, Basketball, and Track & Field. I became active in all of these my freshman year. Some other clubs and organizations I was a part of in High School include FCCLA, FBLA, Drama Club, Student Council, and the Freshman Mentor Program. With all of these things to do, I never had a lot of time to have a typical SAE, so I decided to take advantage of what I had at the time and did the Food Service Supervised Agricultural Experience through my work at McDonald's. I got involved in FFA by taking an agriculture class my freshman year. From there, it all took off. I began participating in contests and herd about all the cool trips that were offered. My favorite contest by far was the Forestry CDE. I really liked getting out and working with all of the different variety of trees Wisconsin has to offer. My Junior year, the team was fortunate enough to make it to the National contest. Sadly, this meant I had to find a new contest to poor myself into. That's when I fell in love with Job Interview. I also have competed in Parliamentary Procedure and Nursery/Landscape. I was also the Student Advisor for my chapter my Junior and Senior year. This position gave me the opportunity to work with the awesome middle school members. My family is a huge reason I am hear. It consists of my parents, Glen and Shannon Green, and my two younger sisters, Madelynn and Issabella. I love watching sports and throwing shot put in my free time.
What has been your favorite thing about this year so far?
My favorite thing about this year would have to be the many opportunities to interact with students and help them grow as individuals. There is no greater experience than to meet all of the great FFA members throughout the state and hear all of the terrific stories. While there are many unforgettable things from this year as a State Officer, this would have to be the best part.
What are you looking forward to most in the coming months?
The one thing I would say I'm looking forward to most would have to be the banquet season. While State Convention is going to be great and very exciting, banquets just hold a special place within me. Every banquet is like a little convention for that chapter. This is the chance for those local members to shine and show what they have been working on all year. It truly is something magical.
What do you plan to do after state office?
After State Office, I plan to go to school for Ag. Education with a minor in Athletic Coaching and eventually become an Ag teacher and a high school coach. My goal is to return to a small town similar to what I grew up in. I would also like to return to school to receive my accounting degree.†
What advice would you like to leave for FFA members?
I would encourage FFA members to grab a hold of as many opportunities as possible. Be sure to partake in as many conferences and competitions as possible. You will never regret developing the leadership skills that you will gain through these events. FFA is a great organization with many chances to grow. Be sure to utilize this.
