A Streator High School senior is one of the top four finalists in the FFA Supervised Agricultural Experience competition. Lance Moritz will go to Indianapolis in late October for an interview to find out if he gets the top award.
He’s earned the recognition by serving ten customers in his family’s lawn care and landscaping business. He’s already working on his senior year project, which will require knowing not just what he’s doing on his family’s farm, but also how it affects others. He must use farm chemicals that won’t adversely affect his neighbor’s crops.
Moritz is already working on career plans. He wants to major in agriculture business in college and learn welding.
Also at Streator High School, senior Jason Black got a silver ranking for his project in which he made more than $18,000 in grain production since he was a freshman. The ranking means he’s in the top 25%.
