OFI 394: Combining Sheep And Crops On The Way To An American Degree | FFA SAE Edition | Natalie Harris | Chapman High School FFA

SHOW NOTES

INTRODUCING NATALIE HARRIS!

Our guest today was a national proficiency finalist in 2016, and this year she will be receiving her American Degree at the National FFA Convention.  

Natalie Harris has been in the sheep and crop production business since high school, and it is taking her to the top.  Now she is studying agribusiness at Kansas State University and using her experience in the FFA to help her succeed.  Her former experience as a chapter president and district vice-president will definitely be a benefit to here, wherever she lands.

I hope you enjoy this show with Natalie Harris.

Support FFA 

Donate to FFA – One way that FFA students are able to start small businesses is through an FFA grant of $1,000.  In 2014, 141 FFA students received these grants.  With your donations, more students can get this head start – pay it forward.

REASONS TO DONATE TO FFA:

  • Only 2% of Americans grow and raise most of the food and livestock consumed by the other 98% as well as the rest of the world.  FFA is providing the needed education, training and resources to Americans that will carry that torch forward and insure that America continues to have inexpensive, quality food.
  • Rural Communities will rely on entrepreneurship in the future for population growth and job creation.  The FFA is a major catalyst to that entrepreneurial growth.
  • Farmers, ranchers and those working in agriculture give the rest of America incredible amounts of freedom because the search for food is as simple as going to the grocery store:

“Because American farmers are able to provide for so many of us, they give more and more of us the freedom to pursue goals and livelihoods beyond growing the food we need to survive.”
