“The banquet is a way for us to highlight our chapter’s accomplishments,”FFA Advisor Eric Miller said. “I am happy that so many people took time out of their busy schedule to recognize all of the hard work that our FFA members have put in this year.  I would like to thank all of our retiring officers for their dedication to service this year.” 

The 2017-18 FFA secretary Heather Freund said, “I thought the banquet went really well. It was a great experience with fantastic people. We had some amazing leaders in the senior group, and I look forward to seeing what we will be doing next year.”

Junior Josh Rossell, who will serve as the 2017-18 Sentinel, said, “The banquet went very well, the food was great and a lot of people showed up. The officer team from the 2016-2017 year did a very great job and helped me become more active in the chapter, I hope to do the same for current and incoming members during my time as sentinel,” Josh Rossell.

“It was bittersweet and hard not to cry!” A. Boes said about her final banquet.  “As FFA has been a huge part of my life for the last four years, it was hard to say goodbye. All members have become one big family and it is always hard when you lose them.”
