Jackson Sterle has been named the “Roland-Story Agriculture/FFA Student of the Month” for November. Sterle is a junior this year at Roland-Story.

“Jackson is an excellent student and a well respected leader in our organization. He possesses a lot of common sense and is well respected by his peers,” said Brad Taylor, agriculture education instructor and FFA advisor.

Sterle has participated in many events and activities this past year including: participating in the state fair where he showed swine, competed this summer in the State Ag Mechanics contest, volunteers to work on various community service projects and participates in chapter meetings and activities. Most recently, he attended the 92nd National FFA Convention in Indianapolis. Sterle is currently serving his FFA chapter as secretary. He is also involved in football, wrestling and trap shooting.

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

Jackson’s SAE project involves the raising of swine and sheep on the family acreage outside of Roland.
