NJSA Junior Board Feature :: Kevin Rogers
What is your favorite aspect of being on the Junior Board?
My favorite aspect of being on the Junior Board is being able to meet all the awesome NJSA members from all over the country! Making connections with people who are as passionate about the swine industry as I am is one of the main reasons I decided to run for the Junior Board.
What is a fun fact about yourself?
Whenever I am showing and concentrating really hard I stick my tongue out. Growing up showing it’s hard to find pictures of me showing without my tongue sticking out!
What is your favorite stock show memory?
My favorite stock show memory was when I drove the 6th Overall Purebred and Champion Berkshire Gilt at the Arizona National Livestock Show. Seeing all my hard work and dedication payoff is one of my favorite memories from showing.
How do you hope to impact the agriculture industry?
I plan to be an Agriculture Education teacher so I will be able to work with the youth who will be leading the industry in the future. My mission is to inspire and change the lives of youth and help them find their passion through agricultural education. Some of my greatest mentors in my life are my FFA advisors, and I want to impact youth in agriculture like they impacted me.
