How has FFA prepared you for your future aspirations: “Mrs. (Tiffany) Hoy tends to push me and make me look at things from different perspectives. Through both the Animal Science course, my SAE programs, and the FFA, I’m beginning to understand the reality of wanting to own and operate an equine business.”

Special Thanks: “I would like to thank Sierra Robison, a senior, for encouraging me to participate in the FFA.”

Quote: “FFA is not just an elective, it’s a way of life.”
