After developing rapport, possibly begin teaching as an agricultural education instructor Alicia Hodnik knows that it takes a mere instant to make a lasting impression.
After an exciting day touring the U.S. Naval Academy, she was leaving when a Navy officer singled her out of the crowd and said, “No matter what happens, make sure you remember this day, these sights and these smells. No matter what.”
Hodnik said that she’ll never forget her experience at the academy – especially the impression that naval officer
made on her life in just a brief moment.
“A national FFA officer sometimes only gets a moment of time to meet someone and make a difference,” she said. “Whether five or 500 feet away, my influence must always be strong. The challenge is, I’ll never know what small moment will be the one that changes a person’s life.”
