My SAE project is the ownership of two goats. My family has owned goats since I was 13 years old. I have been responsible for their care ever since then. Having an SAE project teaches a person financing, organization, and responsibility that one will need at some point in life.

Being a member of FFA is a great way to be involved with the community. One does not need to live on a farm in the country for the FFA. Any member of the FFA is introduced to many opportunities that can affect one throughout their being.

I also showed the Corgi at the Livingston County Fair this summer at the dog show. She placed third in obedience and first in showmanship. I plan on showing her in some bigger shows.

 Hi! My name is Kylie. I am currently a junior at CHS and a third year member of the FFA. After high school I plan to attend college. At college I plan to receive my nursing degree as either an OB Nurse or and ICU Nurse.

Over the past two years of being in FFA, I participated in several FFA activities. Activities that I have participated in American Royal, going to FFA Camp at the Lakes of the Ozarks, I also attend many of the monthly meetings. Through FFA activities I have had the pleasure of meeting many new friends.

My SAE project is a steer. My steer is located at my grandparentís farm. Working with a steer is hard, but challenging work. Every year my family and I show our steers at our local county fair. Having an SAE project helps us as students to be more organized, to keep records, and to become more responsible. All these qualities are needed in the future when we are out on our own.

Being in the FFA had given me an opportunity to be involved not only in the classroom but also in the community. Participating in the FFA has been an enjoyable experience. I strongly would recommend others thinking of joining to join. You wonít experience anything like the FFA.

During my sophomore year in FFA, I had a lot of fun and learned even more than I did my freshman year. I received my chapter degree, another gold eagle award, and Bargain Bin/Watt-Mizer Award. This year, I plan to become more involved in the organization to earn another Gold Eagle Award. My SAE project is working in yard maintenance, and I have thoughts about adding another project later that will involve either a type of fowl and/or horse.

I have really enjoyed being a member of FFA and encourage others to do the same. We have learned many skills that will help us later in our lives. I plan on completing all four years in FFA, and if you join, I hope you do the same.
