Higginsville FFA


Higginsville, Missouri


I am currently a senior at Lafayette County C-1 High School.

Lynn Dyer
SAE Project:

My SAE is in the area of beef production entrepreneurship. I also work on my family’s beef and row crop farm, and seasonally for the Higginsville Parks and Recreation Department.

What motivated you to want to become a Missouri FFA officer?

I grew up on a farm in a rural community where I knew that I would become involved with FFA in high school, but what I did not know was the significant impact the organization would have on my life. One day in my eighth grade intro to ag class, we watched the retiring address video of past national officer Erica Baier, who had been diagnosed with cancer in the middle of her year of service. I remember realizing at that moment that if Erica loved FFA so much to continue serving thousands of students across the nation while fighting an extremely challenging personal battle, the organization I was about to join was something truly special. As I went on to experience FFA for myself, I knew that I wanted to give back to the organization and help as many others as possible experience the impact I have.

What legacy do you most want to leave with Missouri FFA members during your year of service?

The legacy I want to leave with FFA members is that their FFA journey can be whatever they make it. Finding one’s place in an organization like FFA that has so much to offer can seem daunting, but you will never regret trying new things and taking advantage of every opportunity you can. If you put in the work, there is no limit to the level of success you can achieve in FFA.  

What are your plans for the future?

I plan to graduate Lafayette County C-1 High School in spring of 2024, and will then attend college to pursue a major in agricultural communications with a minor in international agriculture.

What is something unique or interesting that few people know about you?

I love Harry Potter (I’ve read the books seven times), listen exclusively to Taylor Swift music, and drink a lot of milk.

Advice to FFA Members

“Comparison is the thief of joy.” This Theodore Roosevelt quote may be a bit cliche, but it’s one I’ve come to find a great deal of truth in throughout both FFA and life in general. Early on in my FFA career, I constantly compared myself to my peers. I found myself questioning why I didn’t measure up in certain areas, rather than realizing that my strengths were different from theirs. It takes different types of people to build a good team, so my advice to FFA members is to find your strengths and hone them. You will be a great deal happier when you ditch comparison and instead focus on being the best possible version of yourself because that is what makes you great.
