We exhibited cattle all over the state of texas and Louisiana.
I grew up in Richmond, Texas and was heavily involved in the FFA at an early age. I showed all species of livestock primarily showing cattle and poultry. Ag has played a huge part in my life and will continue to do so as I enter my career of education. I have a huge passion for students and their education.
