SAE Project: I have two main SAE's, Agricultural Education and Swine Production. My Agricultural Education SAE is mostly composed of my chapter's farm to school day visits where we go around to local elementary schools and talk to students about agriculture and the role it plays in their lives. In this program I am responsible for maintaining active and proper communication with everyone involved as well as facilitating events. My other SAE is Swine Production where I produce pigs both for my family and local FFA and 4-H members to show as well as a few butcher pigs. I have also been able to combine my SAE's through an annual chapter butchering where members get to learn about meat processing.

Favorite CDE or LDE: My favorite Career Development event is parliamentary procedure. In parliamentary procedure I get to work in team to accomplish a specific goal. We must be able to understand each other and be prepared for anything. In 2020 my team won the state contest however we never got to compete in Indianapolis because of he COVID-19 pandemic.

Favorite FFA Memory: One of my favorite FFA memory was when I went to the big E in Springfield, Massachusetts to compete in food science. On that trip I was able to meet students from other chapters and states, many of whom I still consider as good friends today. I also was able to learn about agriculture in a region I was unfamiliar with and how it compared with my families operation.

Future Plans: After my year as an officer I plan to Attend Blue Ridge Community collage and then transfer into the Agri Business Program at Virginia tech. I hope to someday operate my own farm and custom harvesting and hay business along side my families operation.
