Southern Door Student Receives $1,000 Wisconsin FFA Foundation Grant
Jared Baudhuin, Southern Door senior and FFA member, received a $1,000 Dairy Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) grant from the Wisconsin FFA Foundation. He was one of 37 Wisconsin FFA members from 27 different chapters chosen as a grant recipient. Successful candidates were chosen based on the level and scope of their SAE in accordance with their age, future goals and plans for the program as well as financial need. Students completed a five-page application explaining their SAE program, how much funding they are in need of, the expected use of those funds, and future goals with their SAE as well as FFA and other school activities. Their FFA advisor submitted a statement about their involvement in the organization and the student’s vision with their SAE. “Jared is an incredibly hard-working individual and truly deserves this SAE grant to further his dairy supervised agricultural experience. He does his best to assist in livening up our organization and FFA is very blessed to have him as one of our officers. He is a phenomenal leader and will go on to do numerous great things!” said his FFA adviser Ann Glowacki. Dairy SAE grants were sponsored by: Dairy Business Association, Dairy Business Milk Marketing Cooperative, Foremost Farms USA, Nasco, Saputo Cheese USA Inc., We Energies, and the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board. “We are so proud of the work Wisconsin FFA members are accomplishing and the innovative ideas they present to us for their SAE projects. Our generous donors make this all possible and for them, we are continually thankful,” said Jen Bradley, interim executive director of the Wisconsin FFA Foundation.
