SAE Project(s)
My Supervised Agriculture Experience was on Sheep and Goat Production and Management. I started my farm at the age of fifteen and have learned to manage my sheep and goats through the help of local farmers in my county. I was able to learn about the different diseases, parasites, and funguses while helping on a friend's farm. I took what I learned and was able to keep my herd happy and healthy. I worked on more production over the past few years and was able to double my herd size this past winter. This experience allowed me to produce a healthier and higher quality herd that I can continue to grow and learn from.

Favorite CDE or LDE
My favorite CDE would have to be floriculture. I first tried the floriculture CDE my junior year. I had always had a passion for making arrangements and learning more about the different types of plants. I was able to learn more about the parts that go into making arrangements and what the job of a florist truly is. I was able to test my knowledge of invasive plant species and the different types of flowers and grasses. Floriculture helped me develop time management skills and helped me gain more knowledge about floral products.

Favorite FFA memory
My favorite FFA memory would have to be the first day of the 96th State Convention because I got to meet the other candidates who were running for state office. They truly made such an impact in life and I am proid to know each and every one of them. I never realized how three days can bring so many people together. I will forever remember the nominating comittee, the volunteers, and the candidates who made it such an amazing experience.

Future Plans
After serving this year as an officer I plan to attend New River Community College for 2 years. Then I plan to transfer to Virginia Tech for the vet school. Then I plan to obtain a career as a mixed practice veterinarian.
