Roland-Story Agriculture student and FFA member, Jacob Sterle, was been selected the “July Agriculture Student of the Month.” Jacob is the son of Jodi and Stephen Sterle, of Roland. He is a 2017 graduate of Roland-Story.

“Jacob is an excellent student and a natural born leader. He possesses lots of common sense and was looked up to by many in the agriculture program,” said Brad Taylor, agriculture education instructor and FFA advisor.

Sterle has participated in many events and activities throughout his high school career such as: receiving his Iowa FFA degree, participating in the state fair Agriculture Demonstrations division, was a member of many contest teams, attended district, state and national conventions and competed in leadership contests at the State FFA convention. He also served as a three-year officer in the FFA, most recently as president.

“Jacob is an excellent representative of his chapter, school, community and family. He demonstrates honesty, integrity, appropriate work ethic and dedication at all times. His actions speak highly of his character,” said Taylor.

Sterle will be attending Iowa State University this fall where he will be majoring in animal science.
