After graduation, my dream is to attend West Texas A&M where I plan to earn my degree in agriculture/ agricultural education. I have so many people to thank for influencing me, and allowing me to be where I am today. Those influences are what have helped shaped me to become the person I am today, and that is the same impact which I hope to impart into the lives of so many younger generations. Here’s to an amazing year, and an even better show season!

I will exhibit these projects at each of the Texas Major Stock Shows, in hopes of a successful and prosperous year. Within my FFA chapter, I am currently serving as the Krum FFA Chapter President and have competed in many LDE’s and CDE’s which include livestock judging, horse judging, marketing plan, quiz bowl, extemporaneous speaking, agricultural issues, and radio broadcasting. I am also actively involved in the National Honor Society and Student Council. After high school graduation, I plan on attending Texas Tech University and obtaining a degree in the agricultural industry. I am extremely excited to be a part of the 2019-2020 NRS Show Team and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
