Edgar Gonzalez, a senior at the Granite Technical Institute in Salt Lake City, has been a member of the Granite Mountain FFA Chapter for the past three years. Edgar is a non-traditional student; he lives in an urban setting and he is visually impaired, but he has taken to the FFA like a duck to water. Edgar has shown market lambs and market hogs at the Salt Lake County Junior Livestock Show. He has also participated in the FFA Prepared Public Speaking Career Development Event (CDE), the Utah Farm Bureau/FFA Discussion Meet, and the FFA Job Interview CDE. He currently serves as the FFA Chapter Vice President. Edgar reports, “I would like to be a State FFA Officer because I love the FFA and I would love to be more involved. I also would like to be a better example for others and a strong leader.” We think Edgar’s leadership in the FFA has provided a great example. He personifies the FFA Week theme of “Infinite Potential – Envision, Discover, and Achieve.”
