Taylor Halopka - Section 7
Wisconsin FFA Treasurer
Home Chapter: Colby FFA
Major: Agricultural Business
Minors: Dairy Science and Farm Management
Over the past nine years, FFA has made an impact on me in many different ways. The most prevalent impression is the direction of my future. Because of FFA, my future looks very bright! FFA has pointed me down a path that I never thought was a possibility before joining this successful organization.
My college choice is a direct result of attending competitions on the UW-River Falls campus. More importantly, however, I’ve pursued a degree in Agricultural Business because FFA has challenged me to learn and grow at an incredible speed, but also brought out my love for the agriculture industry.
FFA simply is able to offer the number of opportunities available to its members because of the generous support of teachers, parents, sponsors, donors and so many others.
Some opportunities that I was able to take advantage of were attending the Washington Leadership Conference (WLC) in Washington D.C., and receiving hands-on experience in the agriculture field as well as multiple scholarships.
Without these opportunities, I can honestly say that I would not be on the same path right now. I cannot wait to secure a career within agriculture and begin to contribute to agriculture’s positive imprint on the world!
