I wanted to really show that I truly care about production ag and feeding the world, Mack said.
All of the challenges Mother Nature gives you also shows you how to work and come up with solutions, Mack said.
She credits her family and ag teacher for supporting her.
One of my favorite FFA moments was making it to state FFA Creed contest finals as a freshman, she said.
FFA has taught me hard work pays off, she said.
You don't want to let opportunities pass you by, she said.
