When asked why she is involved in so many activities, she is quick to state that “I absolutely love being a part of the Ashland community and agriculture department.”.   

Millie has been involved in a number of activities with the FFA, and her favorites include the FFA, National Convention, Barn-warming, Barnyard(s), Bicycle Refurbishing Project for children in need, and the Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival. “I love being involved in community activities while making new friends!

A lot of people don’t understand what it takes to be a farmer and to be a part of it all, so it’s my job to help everyone understand!”
