Matt Brechwald introduces us to two members of the Strasburg FFA Chapter in Virginia. Nathan McDonald explains how he uses a skill learned from his grandfather for his woodworking SAE. Nathan harvests maple, cherry, walnut and cedar wood to make wooden writing pens that he sells or gives away. For her agricultural sales SAE, Ashley Yanego works at a local flower shop where she does everything from sweeping up flower stems to making arrangements. Ashley was a volunteer at the shop before she was hired.
