Digital leader at Nutrien Ag Solutions recalls FFA experience
The vice president of digital at Nutrien Ag Solutions says he will never forget attending his first National FFA Convention.
Cameron Holbrook says “it was in the year 2000 and I had just recently graduated from high school and the location was Louisville, Kentucky. I very clearly remember the chills I had walking into the expo center like we’re talking in right now and thinking ‘wow, I’m a farm nerd and I love agriculture and there are tens of thousands of farm nerds just like me all over the United States.’”
Speaking to Brownfield during the 94th National FFA Convention and Expo, he said the organization helped him discover opportunities in agriculture.
“For me it was a real eye-opener to realize the global opportunities and the depth and breadth of the various companies in the ag industry,” he says.
Holbrook gave a presentation about his experience in the organization, his participation in the Lehi FFA Chapter in Utah, and the impact his ag advisor made on his life at the Nutrien Ag Solutions both in the National FFA Expo.
