Happy National FFA Week!
The WIU School of Agriculture is celebrating by featuring students and alumni who have been impacted by their FFA experience and are still involved in the organization.
Shannon Brown, a senior from Steward, IL, began her FFA career at Rochelle Township High School. She was an active member for all four years and served in leadership positions for two years. One of her favorite memories from her FFA experience was earning her FFA State Degree in 2013. Her leadership experience, coupled with her achievements at local contests and regular attendance at state and national conventions helped prepare her for her transition to WIU.
“I met so many people through FFA, some of which I’m still friends with today. Being in FFA helped me get out of my shell which also helped me get used to being away at school.”
Shannon is involved with FFA on the collegiate level, hosting contests and conferences for high school chapters.
Shannon plans to pursue a career in agronomy while helping on her family’s farm. We know she will be a lifelong supporter for FFA!
