Nathaniel has worked over 1,500 hours and invested the majority of his earnings back into his business. From hiring classmates to earning LLC status, Nathaniel has worked diligently to make his business sustainable and profitable. Nathaniel will be competing in the National FFA Convention & Expo on October 26-28th, 2022, in Indianapolis, Indiana. We are proud of his accomplishments and wish Nathaniel the best of luck.
