I was very involved in FCA at Bethany College. When I started coaching, we started a junior high FCA group, and when I moved up to the high school, I kept the junior high going and started an FCA at the high school. Then I went to Dodge City Community College and got an FCA started there, and I finally jumped into one that was already started when I went to K-State.
