On today's episode of the Off-Farm Income Podcast I am fortunate enough to speak with a very high achieving student who is involved in agriculture, sports, business education, her faith and so much more. Olivia Odle is a standout, becoming her chapter's president, while being very active in many areas outside of the FFA. She lives in Northeast Colorado, which is completely focused on agriculture and so much different than the vast majority of her state.
Olivia keeps up a rapid pace of activity, but it is apparent that she would not be able to do this if her community and school did not value agriculture and the FFA so much. As an example, sports can sometimes interfere with other extracurricular activities, such as the FFA, but her community and school clearly support agriculture so it works out. The mascot for Oliva's school is the "beet diggers", which is clearly indicative of the growth of sugar beets as a crop in her area and her area's history.
It is this type of support that has allowed Olivia to succeed in so many different areas of life and take on responsible positions, such as president of her chapter. And it is this type of support that will push her to succeed at the next level when she begins college, just two months after this episode is published!
