The FFA is all about opportunity. From learning about different careers, learning vocational skills, public speaking to doing research the FFA offers abundant opportunities.
At what point do these opportunities end? Is it during your senior year of high school, just after graduation, or sometime during your freshman year of college? In today’s episode, we will be speaking with a student who is mid-way through his first year of college and is just seeing all the different FFA opportunities open up in front of him.
Creed Ammons is the 2020 National Proficiency winner in agricultural processing. In addition to that, he is serving as the state president for the State Of West Virginia and studying agricultural education at West Virginia University.
Even though Creed is already in college, his opportunities in the FFA are just getting started. He still has the chance to become a national officer as well as an American Star winner, and he will be receiving his American Degree in the future. Creed is studying agricultural education and is looking at becoming an ag teacher like his parents, but he is also keeping the possibility open of working in agricultural policy either at the state or national level.
I was very excited to learn during this interview that Creed had received a $1,000 scholarship from our great sponsor, Lacrosse Footwear, last spring. The serendipity of having him on the show and him winning a scholarship from those great folks is almost too much to believe!
Interviews like Creed’s are very exciting to record because you can see all the possibilities for his future laid out in front of him.
