FFA Scholarship

“The competition for this scholarship was stiff. It was a privilege to be selected. I am excited to become a vet. Although I do things a little differently from most people, I have yet to find something I am absolutely unable to do.”

FFA $5,000 recipient Amy Wehner graduates from Vista High School with a 4.12 GPA and an incredible tenacity; harnessing her abilities to surmount hardships and work toward becoming a veterinarian, starting at Cal State San Marcos. Recounting how she daily lives her life “with the optimism and determination it takes to get over the cracks in the pavement” in her wheelchair, Amy exudes a cheerfulness of spirit that enables her to get over the pavement cracks of her life. Where others may see obstacles, Amy, who has had Spinal Muscular Atrophy since birth, sees opportunities. She is a school cheerleader, spokesperson for people with disabilities, and perennial showmanship winner with her rabbits and lambs at the Fair. Amy believes, “Although I do things a little differently from most people, I have yet to find something that I am absolutely unable to do.”
