That Blue Corduroy Jacket

ffa-15-114-luke-kerstetterLuke Kerstetter, Pennsylvania State Sentinel, sat down with Jamie Johansen at the National FFA Convention to talk about what he is passionate about in agriculture.

“I’m passionate about agriculture education, because as the growing population [of the world will reach] 9 billion, we need to figure out ways to implement better technology into farming as well as agriculture science and biotechnology.  It will help out the world as well as the U.S. as a whole,” Kerstetter relates.

From a freshman who hadn’t considered taking an ag class until his brother encouraged him to do so, Luke has come a long way in his outlook on FFA and the industry.  He credits getting that blue corduroy jacket as a major moment for him.  Now he hopes to wear that jacket as an ag teacher himself someday.
