Today’s Senior spotlight is on Nathan Ruth, Nathan has been involved in rodeo, FFA, 4-H, and basketball.
In the fall Nathan plans on attending Sheridan College for Machine tool technology Nathan states “In this program, I will learn how to design and build parts that will be used in the agriculture industry, such as farming and ranching equipment. I will also be taking a welding class within this program that will provide me the knowledge to fabricate and repair different types of metal.” Nathan also plans on enrolling in the farrier program in his spring semester to earn his certification in advanced horseshoeing. Nathan wants to provide this service to the local equine owners around Big Timber. Nathan plans on either becoming a machinist in Montana, hopefully, Big Timber. Nate plans on coming back home in hopes of his new career allowing him time and financial needs to be on the family ranch. Nathan would also like to build his cattle herd.
If Nate was stranded on an island and could only bring three things he would bring water, food, and a rope.
