He was the FFA Land Lab Manager and recently served as their chapter’s vice president.

JM’s agriculture skills are continually put to use as he works at Patchwork Gardens, helps his dad on the farm and takes care of his 4-H animals preparing them for the county fair.

JM has been involved in painting pink ribbons for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, painting fire hydrants, collecting supplies for the local shelter and Humane Society and helping paint and clean the concession stand around the local baseball, softball and t-ball fields.

Being part of FFA has helped JM decide what he whats to do with his future. JM said, “There is always something new to learn in the agronomy field…always seems like new ideas and principles of farming are ever changing.”
