I have been involved with the FFA since 1989, when I was in 7th grade. Without the positive role models I met and the leadership skills I gained, I wouldn't be the person I am today. Home wasn't the best place when I was growing up, so any chance I had to go to an event organized through the FFA or on a trip to a conference or workshop where I could build life skills to get out of that negative home situation...I was there! One of those trips took me to the college I chose to attend after I graduated from high school and the organization also provided me with a look at many different careers. I chose to become an Agriscience Instructor and FFA Advisor so that I could in turn be that positive role model for young people today. I have never looked back! This organization offers students the vehicles necessary to set and achieve goals, gain valuable life skills and become upstanding citizens who can make a difference in others' lives. I am proud to be an Agriscience Instructor and lifetime FFA Alumni member.
