I chose Whitewater because Whitewater has a long reputation of commitment to agricultural education and the FFA.
Greetings and welcome to the WHS world of Agriscience !!!!!!!!!!!!
THE BEST WAY TO PREDICT THE FUTURE IS TO MAKE IT.
Our department gives students real world opportunities to apply skills they are developing in other classes.
Students discover the power they possess to enhance our world's ability to sustain itself via the production/ distribution of food and management of natural resources.
The FFA also provides opportunities for youth to become accountable to themselves while discovering and developing their inherent leadership skills.
Besides watching students experience success Mr. Majors enjoys: biking, horse training, hiking, water skiing, snow skiing, football, wrestling, foosball, yesterday-today-tomorrow
Students and others say Mr. Majors' idiosyncrasies are:
"Can't" is considered a self insulting word. It is seldom true. "I choose" "I choose not to" demonstrates confidence/trust.
"Never empower anyone else to treat you fairly or unfairly. Only give yourself that power."
"You don't "have to" do anything in this world, you "get to"." "Its all about opportunities."
"Learn to make the "right thing" easy and the "wrong thing" uncomfortable enough that you make the right choice. "
"If you had a choice you'd choose "above average". "Help employers choose you."
"Always improve and keep balance the priority."
"If we can cause ourselves to physically feel nausea and sweat with just our negative thoughts, think about the equally positive power we all possess by training ourselves to think positively."
"There will never be a more valuable and fragile natural resource than our nation's youth."
"We are all perpetual learners. Its unavoidable."
