Supervised Agriculture Experiences (SAE)

My favorite SAE is raising market swine, but I also care for my own livestock, poultry, and the animals at the school farm.

Favorite FFA Memory

My favorite FFA memory was my first year going to the national FFA convention in Indianapolis, Ind. I had never seen so many FFA jackets in one place and it was an extraordinary experience overall.

Hobbies

In my free time I enjoy hunting, hiking, reading, and showing pigs at the Nevada Junior Livestock Show.

Future Goals

I intend to graduate from the University of Nevada, Reno with an environmental science degree to promote the importance of the environment and to conserve native species.

What do you want to accomplish as a state officer?

My goals as a state FFA officer are to promote the positive effects of the FFA organization and increase the participation of the member.
