What’s an interesting fact about you that would surprise most people?
I own and operate my own pumpkin patch. I have been growing pumpkins since I was in high school, using them as my supervised agriculture experience.

Jay GreenWhat advice would you give high school students about college?
Embrace it. Work hard in high school making good grades and taking dual credit classes if they are offered. Get involved. Get an education instead of just a degree.

Who has influenced you the most in your life and why?
The person that has influenced me the most would most definitely be my grandad. He has always been there for me; from helping me fix a food plot, to coming and watching me play basketball. He taught me right from wrong. I have learned a strong work ethic from him and am very thankful for that and everything he has done for me. He has helped mold me into the person I am today.

What do you want to do after graduation?
After graduating this May, I plan to attend graduate school at MSU continuing my education. I plan to get my Master of Science degree in agriculture. While taking classes, I hope to work at FarmLogic which is where I currently work. I am able to utilize the skills and knowledge that I have learned at school.

Where is your favorite spot on campus?
My favorite spot on campus would be the benches on either side of the main walkway on MSU’s campus. I enjoy sitting there, talking to people and killing time between classes.

Why did you choose MSU?
In high school I was able to take dual credit courses through Racer Academy. This allowed me to get a head start on my school. While taking these courses, I got to know several of the agriculture professors and saw how much they cared about my future and learning. This was a big factor to my decision to attend MSU. It was also close to home so I could save money by not having to rent an apartment or live in the dorms.
