Dairy Production Placement
What is one lesson you have learned as a state FFA officer?
Iíve learned to appreciate the small moments and interactions with others in my time as a state officer. Our FFA experiences are always jam-packed, and my year as a state officer has been no different. We all stay incredibly busy trying to fit countless activities and events into the yearís time, and they all make for rewarding accomplishments. But the connections Iíve been able to make with FFA members, alumni, and industry professionals is what has truly made this year special. As fast as this year has flown by, Iíve learned to appreciate the present moments that put everything into perspective and offer constant reminders of how lucky I am to be surrounded by good company. Those unique individual moments have accumulated to create a set of memories I will cherish forever.
If you could be any food, what would you be and why?
Bacon. I donít know too many people who donít like bacon, and I like to think Iím a pretty likeable guy. Bacon is complimentary with just about anything, is a wholesome and hearty protein source, and almost always brings joy to somebody elseís day. And I try to do the same!
What is one opportunity that you'd recommend trying at the Wisconsin FFA Convention this June?
Make sure to be in your seats for the keynote speakers! Some of my most memorable moments from past Conventions include listening to the exceptionally inspirational speeches given on the main stage in Hall D. The motivational stories and messages the talented speakers present never fail to send you out the doors fired up and ready to take on new challenges in and outside of your FFA career!
