1.) Why FFA?:
At first, I joined FFA so I could show my sheep at the Clay County Fair. Since then, I have learned so much more about FFA and I am still involved because I love being part of a group of leaders who want to help others and make our community a better place.
2.) FFA project:
My SAE project is sheep entrepreneurship. My brother bought ewes and a ram when I was in sixth-grade, and when he graduated two years ago I purchased the sheep from him. I continue to have the sheep bred in October so they lamb in March. I choose a few of those lambs to show at the Clay County Fair every year in September and sell the rest.
3.) I’ve learned:
I have learned how important it is to give back to those who have given to you. We participate in many community service projects to show our appreciation to these people, especially farmers. I have also developed better leadership and speaking skills through FFA.
4.) Career path:
Nursing. Even though nursing isn’t agriculture- related, FFA has helped me with this career path by helping me become a better speaker, leader and communicator.
5.) College plans:
Attend either the University of Iowa or South Dakota State University for nursing.
6.) FFA acvtivities:
I have attended and participated in CDE’s during the district and state conventions all throughout high school and I have also attended the national convention twice.
