Why you wanted to serve as a State FFA Officer?
When I was in seventh grade I attended the FIRE conference. I was on crutches and was struggling to get up to the lunch. I was falling behind when one State Officer, named Cory Brown, helped me get to the lunch area. He talked with me the whole way. It may have been a small act but it had a big impact. From that moment on I wanted to be a State Officer. I wanted to be able to have that same impact on other students, and help them to accomplish their dreams and find their passions.
What was your favorite part of the 90th National FFA Convention?
My favorite part of National Convention was networking with members and state officers from across the country. It was amazing to see how different agriculture and FFA looks from Georgia to Utah and back to Wisconsin. It was a unique experience as I had the opportunity to develop many partnerships and see regardless of geography, members' passion for agriculture remains the same.
What is your favorite holiday tradition?
My favorite holiday tradition would have to be the Turkey Bowl. The Turkey Bowl is where members of my church and community get together and play a giant football game on our city's football field the morning of thanksgiving. It's a great time to interact with others while sharing a laugh and being competitive.
