Supervised Agricultural Experience:
Placement on a Potato Farm.
What was your favorite tradition or annual event from your FFA chapter?
I have two favorite traditions done by the Antigo FFA Chapter. The first is our annual "Day on the Farm" event hosted on a local farm. I enjoyed teaching fifth graders all about dairy feed and nutrition. One of my favorite parts is seeing and hearing the amazement from kids when I pointed at a 50 gallon garbage can and explained that a cow's stomach could hold about that much food and water. Working in the FFA Alumni ice cream stand at the Langlade county fair is another special event for me. It is always a great time listening to stories and getting advice from alumni while scooping ice cream and socializing with the public.
What is one thing you are looking forward to doing as a state officer in the future year?
This year I am looking forward to visiting all the chapters in section eight and more importantly getting a chance to meet our amazing members. I have always enjoyed listening to others share their stories and I can't wait to learn from them and relay them across the section and even at the state level.
This year's state theme is "Our Tradition. Our Future. Our Legacy." What are some ways that everyone can contribute to the legacy of FFA and agriculture?
I am thankful to have a tradition of FFA in my family, but our members today don't need to have an established legacy in order to enjoy all that FFA has to offer. It is important for members who maybe don't have that legacy to know that everything they do to develop their leadership skills, encourage personal growth, or prepare for their future careers is also creating their own legacies, and hopefully even establishing a tradition of excellence that future members can be guided by. So if any member is hesitant to try something new, like applying for their own SAE Grant or participating in a different LDE, it may be encouraging to look at the tradition FFA has in making positive impacts and learn that that tradition can become part of their own personal legacy.
