Newly elected State Vice President Harrison Jansen van Beek is excited to share with YOU a little bit about himself!
What are you most excited about for your state officer year?
"I am really excited to begin my chapter visits! Living in the Treasure Valley has been a blessing for me, but I'm ready to meet more members from outside my home area."
What college, major, and future career are you planning?
"I am currently planning on Attending University of Idaho to major in Agricultural Education and Agribusiness. I really want to enter the financial industry to protect local ranchers that way or lobby for agricultural interests."
Tell about a meaningful experience you have had in FFA?
"One of my most meaningful experiences was last summer at Washington Leadership Conference. I was humbled by what others contributed to their community, the amazing people that I met, and the lifelong friends I walked away with. Anyone who can apply for the Foundation Washington Leadership Conference should."
What do you do outside of FFA?
"Outside of FFA, I mainly work at Chick-Fil-A and attend high school! When I'm not doing either of those, I'm usually working with my cows. "
What is your SAE Project?
"My current SAE includes my placement job at Chick-Fil-A where I am a front of house employee, and I raise market and breeding beef. I have been working at Chick-Fil-A for about three months now and have raised beef animals for more than five years."
What is your mission for the year?
"My mission for the year is to be as connected to members as I can be. Each chapter I visit, I want to recognize the people that I meet and make sure members know what we're up to as a state. We have a lot of amazing members out there and the public needs to see it!"
Is there something else you would like FFA members to know about you?
"I make really good dad jokes, so if you ever need a cheesy joke, let me know! I'm looking forward to this year ahead!"
