Lashawna Vogel has so many positive attributes and has accomplished so much already that it is impracticable to try and list them all here. With that said, the thing that stands out to me, so big, is that she grew up outside of agriculture. One of her aunts encouraged her to take ag classes and join the FFA because she knew how positive it could be for Lashawna. Lashawna gave it a shot, and the rest, as they say, is history!

Actually, it is not quite history yet. Lashawna is still competing and accomplishing a lot in the FFA. Right now she is serving as a state officer for the State Of Wisconsin. And, she is one of just four national proficiency finalists in the category of Agricultural Communications! She has been working as a "media intern" in the FFA since her 8th-grade year when she was awarded that position in her middle school chapter. She continued that throughout high school and has grown her skill set more and more each year.

Now, that exposure, the training, and the challenges are all culminating in national recognition. She is also pursuing a degree in agricultural marketing and communications and plans on advocating for agriculture through the medium in the future.
