2017-2018 Nevada FFA Vice President

Melissa Jones

Hometown

Fallon, Nev.

Supervised Agriculture Experiences (SAE)

Agricultural mechanics and goat production.

 

Favorite FFA Memory

My favorite FFA memory is receiving a scholarship to attend the 89th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Ind. Being able to help our chapter teams prepare for competition, attend student workshops, and meet new people was an amazing adventure.

 

Hobbies

Hunting, fishing, and showing livestock.

Future Goals

Completing my college education and receiving my Bachelor's degree in business is my first and foremost future goal. While enrolled in college I want to continue to volunteer as much as I am able. After college and finding a career I will most likely want to start a family of my own.

 

What do you want to accomplish as a state officer?

I want to make sure Nevada FFA continues to thrive in community service and ensure each FFA chapter has the opportunity to participate in agricultural literacy activities. I also want to strengthen the bonds between FFA chapters from different parts of the state.
