What was your favorite tradition or annual event from your FFA chapter?
Each year my chapter held a fruit sale, however it was not the fruit sale itself that became my favorite. My favorite was the delivery day that all of the fruit would be delivered to our bus garage for us to distribute to our dedicated members that made the sales around the community to make each year a success. Seeing the members come together to sell in order to raise money for the chapter to reduce costs of other events for members was truly inspiring. No matter the dollar amount sold each member was able to open a door for other members and that is what truly matters.
What is one thing you are looking forward to doing as a state officer in the future year?
As a state officer in the next year I look forward to chapter visits. These visits allow me to advocate for FFA and agriculture as well as see the members that make this organization tick. I look forward to meeting the many FFA members and agricultural education students and see what great things they are accomplishing in their communities. I hope to meet as many Wisconsin FFA members as possible in my next year of service and touch as many lives as possible!
This year's state theme is "Our Tradition. Our Future. Our Legacy." What are some ways that everyone can contribute to the legacy of FFA and agriculture?
Everyone in some way has the potential to impact both FFA and agriculture! In FFA each member is given the opportunity to define their own legacy by being involved in their local chapters. You do not have to be a chapter officer to make an impact, by being involved and showing that you care is what it takes. The members that follow you will see the effort put forth it is the small acts that make the biggest impact on others and by taking those couple minutes out of your day to make someone else feel welcomed is something everyone can achieve. By not only helping yourself make your legacy but help others create theirs for the future of FFA and agriculture we need the leaders to create believers! By creating future leaders we are helping the agricultural industry as farming is not the only career that farming has to offer, farmers need their bankers, engineers, scientists, and so many more. By staying true to yourself and helping others you have the opportunity to create your legacy!
