Kevin Keenan was chosen to receive this year’s Charlie Rominger Memorial Scholarship.
Kevin has been a member of the Woodland High School FFA Chapter for four years earning his state degree. Throughout high school, Kevin also participated in Boys State through California State University, Sacramento which is a summer leadership and citizenship program sponsored by The American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary for high school juniors.
Through the FFA program at Woodland High School, Kevin participated in CDE judging teams since his freshman year. From freshman to junior year, he was a part of his school’s agronomy team which has helped him accumulate a large amount of knowledge on subjects such as weed identification, crop identification in both seed and live forms, insect identification, farming practices, farming machinery as well as public speaking.
Last year Kevin’s agronomy team competed at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where they won the state championship. Kevin is currently a part of his chapter’s Ag pest control team where he has learned so much already.
Kevin was also an employee as a landscaper/maintenance worker for a member of his community.
Kevin plans to attend California State University, Chico to major in plant science and eventually have the hope of becoming a pest control advisor.
