" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it looks like an outstanding honor to be able to experience it. The work I have done from high school to now is the reason why I want to make a difference in the world. I saw friends and people I didn't even know to struggle for a basic need to live, food. It started there with Project MiGHT and from there creating my own FFA chapter takes helping the community to a whole new level. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Becker FFA Alumni & Friends Chapter
The project is a continuation of the chapter I chartered, it is showcasing one of our service days at a partner we have. We work on the 40-acre nature farm, doing whatever is needed to be done. It ranged from sustainable agriculture, landscaping, animal husbandry, building/fixing animal enclosures, and more.
About the Millennium Fellow
My name is Melissa and I am a rising senior at Becker College majoring in Animal Care and minoring in Animal Behavior. I moved from town to town in Connecticut seeing the different aspects of life and hardship. I am the founder and president of Becker FFA Collegiate Chapter, that is regulated by National FFA. FFA is the largest youth organization in the U.S and serves to develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education. There are many competitions at the high school level. However, the college level is used to give back to the community, help high school students reach their goals, and advocate for agriculture.
