Hannah Brown is a natural FFA advisor

Susan EspirituPowell

Hannah Brown, Powell High School senior, is serving as the student advisor this year for Byington-Solway FFA Chapter of Future Farmers of America.

Hannah joined the FFA last semester and is the oldest in the club but likes being in the advisory role and recruiting students to join from area high schools. She has been to Karns and Powell High schools, attending career fairs and parent nights.

Hannah has her national industry certification in animal science from Elanco and used it to get a  part-time position at Embassy Animal Clinic in Hardin Valley, which she will begin in March.

Hannah says she is very excited to start the new job as she has trained to be a vet tech with small animals and farm calls. She has previously volunteered at Butler Animal Clinic in Karns, helping with many procedures such euthanasias, c-sections and vaccinations.

This animal science life is nothing new for Hannah who grew up on a beef cattle farm in Claxton and still spends her summers a few days each week helping her aunt with annual vaccinations and fixing fences.

Hannah has been to cattle sales, livestock auctions, and  authentic rodeos. She says all her life experiences helps her to appreciate FFAs values.

Hannah had been accepted into the University of Tennessee’s Herbert College of Agriculture to pursue a degree in environmental science.

She lives with mom Stephanie, who works as a developmental therapist; father Stephen, who works in cybersecurity for UT, and brother Peyton, an 8-year-old who loves to ride horses.
