In my 11 years of 4-H I have had the opportunity to exhibit swine, crops, and baked goods. Throughout my 4-H years, I have gained many valuable life lessons such as time management, work ethic, and leadership. In high school I was an active member in the Jacksonville High School FFA chapter, National Honor Society, and varsity football team. I also worked summers at Hutchison Engineering. I currently attend Missouri University of Science and Technology with the goal of graduating with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. I want to thank my parents, grandparents, fair board, and 4-H staff for giving me the opportunities I have had.
