My name is Brandon Thurk. I grew up in Lakefield, MN. I chose to study Ag Ed because of FFA. It sparked a light in me and I want to give back by teaching students about the opportunities and experiences the FFA has to offer. I love to play basketball. I am super competitive. I am also planning to get my coaching certificate so I can coach basketball at the high school level. I also enjoy reading, singing and swimming. I joined FarmHouse because of the great guys. I heard about the house’s four pillars and got to meet some unique members. It feels like home.
