OFI 1583: A Butcher Shop Manager At 18 | FFA SAE Edition | Will Sherman | Prairie View High School FFA
Will Sherman is a 2022 National Proficiency Finalist in the category of Ag Processing. He has been cutting meat at Mound City Butcher Block in LaCygne, Kansas since he was 14 years of age. At age 18, just months after graduating high school he is already managing the shop. Will takes a lot of satisfaction from cutting meat. He sees it as a way to serve his community by preparing their meat for them, whether it be livestock or wild game.
Will is still deciding whether or not college serves his purposes, but he is sure that butchering is part of his future. He wants to eventually own his own shop, whether that means purchasing Mound City Butcher Block or starting from scratch. If he does attend college, his education will be geared towards making him a better business manager and butcher in his chosen profession.
