After talking with previous students that were involved with agriculture classes and the FFA, there was not a doubt in my mind that I would be an active FFA member. In my opinion, taking agricultural courses is better than the traditional high school path because students are more involved in hands on activities. I maintain a grade point average of 4.44 and I plan to pursue a career in the agriculture industry. FFA is a major part of agriculture at our school. I am currently President of our FFA chapter and Vice-President for the Polk County FFA federation. Throughout my two years in FFA I have had great experiences. I have traveled to Washington DC, met Adam Putnam, traveled to Indianapolis for National FFA convention and I have made many lifetime friends. I have also been on the state winning forestry team, and also on the state winning citrus team. In FFA there are endless opportunities.
