Golden Valley FFA
Golden Valley High School
Cameron is a sophomore in the Golden Valley FFA Chapter, and has shown extreme involvement in our program for the past two years. Despite coming from a non-agricultural background, Cameron came into high school looking to learn everything he could about the agriculture industry. This past year, Cameron served as our Chapter Sentinel, and will be serving this next year as both our Chapter President, as well as the Reporter for the entire Merced/Mariposa FFA Section. He has also shown a strong desire to better himself as a leader, and is working to give all of the members a voice in our organization, as well as to inspire others to pursue a future within our extremely essential industry.
On top of this, he has shown his hard-working qualities by demonstrating how to properly care for his swine projects, as well as shows extreme patience in training them and dealing with their nutritional needs. While he has been showing swine in 4-H a few years prior to being in the FFA, he wasn’t quite sure at first if he wanted to take up a career within the agriculture industry. However, after spending a competitive season on our Farm Power and Machinery Career Development Team, he quickly gained a love for agricultural machinery, farming, and was offered a summer job at a local walnut orchard. Since spending his summer in these experiences, he’s discovered that he would someday like to manage his own almond and walnut operation, and has set goals for himself to one day achieve this dream.
Cameron’s love for agriculture, leadership, and his hard working ethic will continue to allow Cameron to thrive in his life’s pursuits, and we look forward to seeing where his journey takes him beyond high school.
