NTRODUCING MADISON NOLLEY:
We all have something inside of us that drives us towards reaching our goals. For some of us, it is a desire to complete worthy goals. For others it the need to do everything correctly that gets us to the endpoint. And for some of us, it is competitiveness. Actually, there is probably a little bit of all of those in all of us, with one outshining the others.
Our guest today is definitely competitive. Madison Nolley describes herself that way. She has an older brother that she loves very much but definitely does not want to be outdone by. This drives her. It got her started in the FFA as soon as her school district would allow - 6th Grade, and it has pushed her into every possible competitive FFA event that she was allowed to do prior to beginning high school.
As a freshman, Madison is already transitioning from a placement SAE to an entrepreneurship SAE, and she has already been able to obtain a $1,000 SAE grant from Farm Credit to help her begin her Dahlia production business. Madison is still competing with her big brother, who is currently serving as the state president for the New York State FFA Officer Team. However, this competition coupled with her natural drive is pushing her towards great achievements of her own.
Madison lovingly talks about being competitive with her brother, but there is a serious side there too. She has some great goals for her flower business, and for the offices, she wants to achieve in the FFA. It is going to be a lot of fun to watch where she goes over the next three + years of high school and FFA.
