My name is Jared Mack and I am proud to be an agricultural instructor and FFA advisor here at Sauk Prairie High School. Sauk Prairie is home for me and I sure am glad to be back! After high school, I attended the University of Wisconsin River Falls where I majored in Agricultural Education and minored in Agribusiness. My educational background was also expanded by working for Bayer Crop Science and interning for LG Seeds throughout my summers. Both of these roles greatly expanded my knowledge within crop breeding programs and seed sales. Also during college, I had the opportunity to serve as a State FFA Officer in 2019-2020 where I traveled the state advocating for agricultural education and leading FFA members.
FFA experiences have led me to being a facilitator for National FFA for their Membership Leadership Series Program. This program allows me to travel to different states to facilitate FFA members and guide them through a leadership experience. I also absolutely love the outdoors. Going turkey and deer hunting, fishing, creating food plots, and checking trail cameras, usually take up all my weekends!
Lastly, I am supported by my parents, Keith and Angela Mack, and my sister and brother-in-law Lianna Mack and Brant Birrenkott. Although I was never raised on a farm, my family has deep roots in agriculture including three of my four grandparents being raised on farms within the area.
I am so glad to be impacting students in Sauk Prairie as their agricultural teacher and FFA advisor!
