Hometown: Oakboro, NC
School: North Carolina State
Major / Species: Poultry Science; Minor: Feed Milling, Animal Science, Agriculture Business Management, and Crop Science
Career Goals: My goals are to get a job in the poultry industry involving live production. I want to be a broiler or breeder technician and work my way up in the company. I can also see myself being a feed mill or hatchery manager. I want to build my own broiler houses one day and have a stocker operation as well. I could use my litter from my chickens and fertilize my own fields for my cattle to capitalize on my resources and to save me some money. I want to help feed the world and solve the 2050 agriculture problem by being the best manager for growers. I want to be able to support myself and my family. I want to give back to my community, especially my local FFA chapter because I wouldn’t be where I am today it if it wasn’t for my FFA advisor. I want to be able to help people in need and to be a positive role model for others as I continue growing up.
