2010 National FFA highlights from around the region

Jordan Brabec of Schuyler, NE, is one of 10 students from across the country who received a National Agri-Entrepreneurship Award and $1,000 during a ceremony at the 83rd National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN, Oct. 23, 2010. The award program recognizes young people who start or are planning to start their own businesses.

Jordan Brabec understands that money doesn’t grow on trees…but it was a tree that sparked the idea for his profitable business venture. Brabec wanted to take a traditional lawn mowing business to the next level. In planning, Brabec asked himself the question, “What if I could plan a business that would trim and prune trees and put the useable residue through a wood chipper to make a satisfactory product to ring the same tree with to prevent damage from the lawn mower?” And so Clip’n’Chip was created and has been growing ever since.

Brabec wanted to be successful, but he also wanted to make a positive difference.

“Through my school, community and work experience, I have gained so much knowledge and lessons of life that have served me well as I continue to grow and make my mark on the world,” Brabec said.

Brabec knows that to successfully operate a business, you must maintain a high moral standard. “I have found that being a good person with good values may not be the easiest road in life, but it is certainly important to success,” he said. His main goal is to increase awareness of the importance of his service and to deliver that service in a timely, customer-convenient manner at a fair and reasonable price. “This is a unique business with a unique owner that offers a unique product,” Brabec said. It is that individuality that has set him apart from competitors and allowed him to be successful.

Brabec is currently a junior at Schuyler High School. He is very active in the FFA, participating in leadership development events and competitions. He is also an active member of Saint Mary’s Church. USDA Rural Development sponsors the National Agri-Entrepreneurship Award Program as a special project of the National FFA Foundation, Inc.
