Supervised Agricultural Experience:
My latest SAE was a placement restoration project on a 122 Cub Cadet. I worked under the supervision of my advisor Buster Padgett, in restoring the old garden tractor. During the project, I learned how to operate a paint booth, operate a sandblaster, and I learned how to work on maintenance issues with an old garden tractor. My restoration SAE is one I’m proud of because it is something I never had thought about doing before, but the project was super interesting and helped me learn more about tractor restoration.

My favorite book is “To Kill a Mockingbird”. Ever since reading it in 9th grade, I have loved to go back and reread it. The story is captivating and the message is powerful
My favorite movie is Forrest Gump. I love all of the history in the movie, and the story it tells is enthralling. The scenery throughout is really beautiful and the movie is just a fun watch altogether.
My favorite meal consists of Steak, Twice baked Potatoes and a homemade pie for dessert.
“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today”- Franklin D. Roosevelt
My favorite song is “Heroes” by David Bowie. I love the song because of the hope it conveys even in the rough situations, and how even if everything seems bleak you can still find the moments of hope throughout life.
Favorite thing about FFA:
My favorite thing about FFA is the amount of people you get to talk to and connect with. Being able to meet so many unique and different people is always something I enjoy doing. And with the FFA not only do I get to meet new people, but I get to impact and be impacted by the new people.
Favorite FFA Memory:
My favorite FFA memory was going to my first chapter visit as a district officer. I was extremely nervous at first but being able to go out to another school and actually conduct a workshop was life changing. And I will remember every up and down of that day.
I am still unsure of college right now. But most likely I either want to go to Alabama or Auburn university. I plan on majoring in either Ag business, or some type of law.
