What has been your favorite thing you've learned or experienced as a State FFA Officer?
My favorite experience as a State Officer is valuing the genuine desire each member, alumni, and advisor has to serving others through the FFA Organization. It has been so humbling to have the opportunity to see first hand the difference that can be made when someone pours themselves into others in order to fulfill their potential. I have both witnessed and experienced this outpouring of selflessness time and time again throughout my years in the blue jacket. Whether it is found in the progress being made within the Hudson FFA, which has led to great accomplishments, or the endless dedication found in the Stanley-Boyd FFA. The legacy it leaves for all involved is what lasts a lifetime!
What is your favorite Wisconsin FFA Convention Memory?
Looking back on the Wisconsin FFA Convention my favorite memory would have to be sitting outside the convention hall with my mom. I felt so grateful to be able to follow in her footsteps in a student led organization such as the FFA. The FFA Organization has shown me what a blessing it is to be able to stand before members, see the gold lettering stitched across the blue jacket, and hear the love each member has for their why' behind who they are.
What are your plans after State Office?
This summer I will continue my employment at Cloud 9 Cattle Company, as well as on my own home family farm. I will also be traveling across the nation for multiple Jr. National cattle shows in the breed areas of Red Angus, Angus, and Simmental cattle. This fall, I will be a junior at the University of Wisconsin River Falls, where I am majoring in Animal Science/Pre-Veterinary Medicine. Upon graduation in May of 2020 I plan to continue my education in vet school to then become a embryo transfer specialist in the cattle industry.
What is one piece of advice you would give to another FFA member or supporter?
Take the time to share what you love, it is then that you'll see how the blessings of service may shape your life through others. We all have the ability to inspire others through our love of the FFA Organization and the opportunities it allows us to grow from. Take the time to share those experiences, stories, lessons, and love with others, because it'll change your life, as it has mine.
