OFI 1399: We Are Out To Feed The World | FFA SAE Edition | Emma Albers | Doniphan West High School FFA
INTRODUCING EMMA ALBERS!
I like to say that if you are hitting all of your goals, you aren't setting them high enough. Today's guest understands that completely. Emma Albers set a goal of becoming a national proficiency finalist when she was in the 9th Grade. She just graduated high school a couple of weeks ago, and she is on the cusp of that accomplishment.
Emma actually has three very strong supervised agricultural experiences and proficiencies - beef production, grain production and veterinary science. It is the rules that actually held her back. In the State of Kansas, one student can only advance to state proficiencies with a maximum of two projects. Ironically, on Emma's farm she gets the most enjoyment out of working with the cattle. However, her strongest two proficiencies were veterinary science and grain production, so that is what she put forth.
Later this month Emma will find out if either of her proficiencies won at the state level. If one of them does, she will be on to compete for that national proficiency award that she decided that she wanted so many years ago!
