Travis Wilke

About Me

My name is Travis Wilke.Through the CEO program, I am excited for the opportunity to see the businesses in my hometown from a new perspective. My goals in the program consist of developing a strong network with local business professionals, gaining interactive experience, and further developing soft skills to gain success in future endeavors. My current plans include attending Lake Land College and transferring to the University of Illinois to obtain a degree in crop sciences. Afterwards, I would like to work in crop genetics or a closely related field. Outside of my schoolwork, I enjoy spending time outdoors, hunting, and fishing. I have also found an interest in working with beef cattle on my small family farm. I am active in clubs and organizations, including 4-H, FBLA, and FFA, in which I have gained experience serving in numerous officer positions and competing in multiple contests. I look forward to preparing myself for a future in agriculture while broadening my horizons in the local business industry.
