It is always amazing to me what a student in high school is capable of when they get fired up about agriculture. Our guest in today's episode is just beginning high school, and she already has so much going for her in addition to having her future well mapped out.
Cameron Shelton is a freshman at Monache High School in Porterville, California. She has been involved in the 4H for six years and is just completing her first year of FFA. She has been showing goats for several years, and currently keeps a herd of 15 wethers at her home about 20 minutes away from Porterville.
Cameron's sister preceded her in the FFA, and she is now living and working in Texas, still involved with goats. This has exposed both Cameron and her sister to opportunities in the goat business, and they have taken full advantage. Cameron and her sister are now co-owners in goats from sea to shining sea, including California, Texas, and Delaware! It is really amazing how deep into the industry Cameron has got herself before she has even finished her freshman year of high school.
If that weren't enough, Cameron knows that she wants to be a veterinarian. As such, she has already identified the top three schools that she would like to attend to propel her into this career: Texas A&M, Tarleton State University, and Colorado State University. It is really exciting to see a student get this fired up about their future!
