What are your career goals? Upon graduating from Mexico High School, I will be attending the University of Missouri- Columbia to major in Agriculture Education: Communication and Leadership. I intend to serve as a public relations director for an agricultural commodity organization and would like to work as a legislative liaison at the capital. I want to advocate for policy issues that impact America’s farmers and ranchers because they are truly the backbone of our society.

What is a motto that you follow? An achievement is not defined by an award won, it is defined by how much you have grown.

What will you miss most about high school? I will miss the opportunities to be heavily involved in the community. FFA has enabled me to produce multiple service learning projects in my community; this has allowed me to implement agriculture literacy courses to the youth in Audrain County. Mexico has provided me with a multitude of opportunities, so I am humbled to serve the community in all ways possible.

If you were principal for a day, what would you change? One day is not enough to fix the things that are in need of change.

Who has the greatest influence on your life and why? My parents have had this great influence on my life. My dad is the sole person to get me involved in the agriculture industry. Growing up in the same beef cow-calf and row crop farm as he did has truly sparked my passion for agriculture. My mom on the other hand, has influenced me by being my biggest supporter. She is always motivating me to become the best version of myself. I am proud to say I am their son.
