Byron is a small farm town village, population averaging around 300 people, as such of the small homey village, people know everyone, and it brings a welcoming atmosphere to anyone who choose to move into Byron. Byron has an elementary, middle, and high school, since the population are slowly decreasing, the community is still strong in the involvement in this town. The high school is notorious of being involved around the community, by doing community service to people nearby, or setting up local events every year. Byron has several non-profit organizations, including FFA, FCCLA, and more. I, personally was in FFA, which was originally stood for Future Farmers of America, but it had changed to a simple acronym decades ago. Through the FFA, I was taught to be a leader, but at the same time pursue my agricultural career, which was and still is Animal Science. FFA has competitions around the country that specializes in what the members want to pursue, such as Skills Contests and Leadership Contests. Personally, I competed in Veterinary Science Skills Contest in my senior year as an individual. I had to study many kinds of breeds, while studying how to inject medication from a needle, how to muzzle a dog correctly, how to prescribe medication through basic math, and more. Out of 463 people that competed, I was placed in the top 25 percent, specifically 61st place. Overall, if I had to choose of either Byron or Las Vegas, I would absolutely pick Byron, Byron has a family-like atmosphere that everyone gets along with everyone. What I want to see in the future is that to have people move in more frequently but at the same time, not over-populating the village, I want to keep the lively home atmosphere, but ever since the incoming population as died down, the schools are getting closer and closer to shutting down, and the schools play a humongous part to the community. Finally, Byron is a great village: the atmosphere, community involvement, and you get your privacy.
