OFI 1493: An Auctioneering Champion And American Star Finalist | FFA SAE Edition | Cotton Booker | Colfax High School FFA Copy
I am always thrilled when a previous guest returns to the show as an American Star Finalist. It is a thrill to know that these students went on to carry their talents to that level. That is the case with today's returning guest, Cotton Booker.
Cotton first appeared on this show in episode #671. Back then he had just become the National Junior Auctioneering Champion, and he was representing the FFA while doing that. Cotton has his own auctioneering business and has continued to master his craft. Obviously, his success has been recognized as he is now one of four finalists for the American Star Award in Agribusiness.
Cotton is now in his junior year of college at Oklahoma State University, and he is studying ag business as well as pre-law. He hasn't quite decided to whether or not law school is in his future just yet, but he sees a lot of application for a law degree in his families business. Already an expert in the business of auctioneering, Cotton has a reverence for his profession that we should all envy. There is no doubt in my mind that is has been my privilege to interview him these two times and that on both occasions I have been speaking with the future leader of this industry.
