Justin Goodlett of the Spencer County FFA chapter was named national winner of the Equine Science Entrepreneur Proficiency Award Program. Four finalists competed to be named the national winner during the annual national FFA convention in October in Indiana.
Proficiency awards recognize FFA members who excelled as agricultural entrepreneurs, employees or volunteers while they gained hands-on career experience.
Goodlett was awarded $1,000 during a special ceremony at the national convention.
For Goodlett, raising and showing horses is a way of life.
