Texas FFA, you’re truly amazing. I have served three years as a convention chronicle staff member, and I couldn’t be more honored to have served as your student editor this year. Working on the chronicle staff has truly been the greatest experience of my life. Through this program I have found my calling into the Department of Agricultural Education and Communications and I couldn’t be more appreciative for all of the Texas Tech staff and students who have volunteered and helped me out while serving on The Convention Chronicle. You know who you are.
I also want to thank all of Texas FFA, especially my incredible advisor and good friend Allison Bequette, for giving me this great opportunity. I hope that my work and service has benefited Texas FFA and Texas agriculture.
