TRACY DENNY TRACY DENNY Agriculture class by Benjamin Franklin that states, “Lost time is never found again”. To me there are never enough hours in the day, and I have to fi nd and maintain that balance in my life. When I started high school my life became more busy and active. I had to fi nd a way to prioritize things. At the beginning of my freshman year, I gave up a six-year-long position on our school football team. When I was asked why I did this, I did not have any remorse because agriculture is where my life is and where I plan to stay and have a life-long career. Now I do my chores easily in the morning before school, and I come home to do the longer chores and work with my show steers. I try to fi nish in plenty of time to complete my homework to keep my grades up at school. If I have FFA or community or church events, I just shift things around the best that I can to allow for all SAE’s to be cared for on a daily basis. This may seem like a burden to some people, but to me it a blessing that God has given me, and I am grateful that I was born on a ranch and that He has allowed me to grow up and accomplish many things while living and learning from the Ranch Life!
