Farm Credit 1125

The Seiling FFA Spotlight is focused on Ellen Schneider, a sophomore softball player for the Wildcats. Schneider starts at first base for Seiling and has been using the extra time at home lately to get ready for her junior season.

“I’ve been working with a batting tee while school has been out,” said Schneider, “just trying to get myself ready for my junior season.”

Schneider’s involvement with the FFA focuses on showing and raising pigs with her family. She even won the Grand Champion Market Barrow at the Dewey County Stock Show during the show season.

“It was pretty cool to win, because our county stock show is super hard to do good at, so being able to win that during the show season was really cool,” said Schneider.

Ellen also credits her family, mainly her big sister, for getting her involved with FFA.

“Mainly my family got me involved,” said Schneider, “but my older sister was really involved too, and she’s kind of my role model for FFA and she’s always excited and gets pumped up so she pushed me to do it and I realized I loved it.”

Besides showing pigs Schneider recently got involved with Farm Business Management and is off to a great start.

“I didn’t really know what it was at first, I saw it at a meat judging competition and figured I’d give it a try, then I took the written test at a competition and placed in the top five, so I realized I was pretty good at it and decided to give it a try,” said Schneider.

Ellen is also a standout in the classroom, maintaining a 4.0 GPA. She is a member of the Beta Club and the National Honor Society.
