My SAE includes a 25-head cow/calf operation. In the winter I sell firewood that is cut and split off of our farm, averaging around 100 ricks of wood per year. During the warm summer months, I operate my own lawn care business. I also include community service in my project as much as possible.
What do you hope to accomplish during your year of service to Missouri FFA?
Becoming a state officer has given me the opportunity to communicate with others and meet members across our state. I hope to create relationships with members that will have a lasting impact on their lives. I also hope to grow as an agvocate for Missouri agriculture.
What is something unique or interesting that few people know about you?
I am a professional Auctioneer and part time disc jockey. I love announcing and look forward to possibly having a career in broadcast media.
Advice to FFA Members
Write your own story. The most memorable experiences in life are often found far beyond the beaten path. Don’t be afraid to be the person that you were created to be. Don’t miss an opportunity to make someone smile. Perhaps that includes opening a door for a stranger or donating your time for community service. No matter what it is, find a way to better someone else. At the end of the day, those who give the most receive the most.
