Tristan Hofer

Lee's Meats and Sausage  Tea, SD


In the Fall Tristan Plans to attend the University of Sioux Falls or University of South Dakota to major in business and minor in entrepreneurial studies. Tristan believes that with a college education he will better know how to serve others and make the world a better place for God’s glory. Tristan has worked with his dad in the family business and Lee’s Meats and Sausages in Tea, SD. Tristan has taken an interest in cattle and crops and has started a sweet corn and potato farm with his brother Ethan. The cattle operation is very small right now but over time he hopes to expand it greatly. His goal is to run a successful cattle ranch while helping his dad run the meat plant. Tristan emphasizes that he has only made it as far as he has now with God’s help and he trusts God to help him follow God’s perfect will for his life and for God’s glory.  Even though Tristan is only a high school senior, he has more than enough college credits to start his second semester of college.
