The Atlantic FFA officer team met with eighth grade students Tuesday, Sept. 26 about joining FFA. The officer team consists of President Colton Rudy, Vice President Lola Comes, Secretary Claire Pellett, Treasurer Roth Denbeste, Reporter Lily Johnson, Sentinel Wyatt Simons, and Student Advisor Charli Goff.

They gave a presentation in the middle school auditorium during the eighth graders’ home base. The presentation consisted of what FFA is, an overview of activities, upcoming events, meeting the officers, and how to join. The presentation also included an introduction to Advisor Eric Miller. The students had a chance to ask questions about the program. Comes made a point to stress that FFA is not just for those interested in agriculture, and that there are numerous leadership and personal growth opportunities as well. The students were encouraged to attend the chapter meeting Sept. 26 at 6:30pm in the commons. A meal will be served at 6pm.

About the Contributor
Claire Pellett
Claire Pellett, Staff Writer, Lead Podcast Editor
Ella Meyer is an AHS junior and in her second year of journalism. Meyer is the lead podcast editor for AHS journalism. Her favorite part is First Fridays.Meyer said, “It is when all of the leads get together and we talk about stuff and we just usually end up having some sort of fun and like laughing and just having a pretty good time.” Meyer is specialized in the podcast department of journalism. Her favorite memory in Journalism is over the summer of 2023 a group went to Media Now, which is a journalism camp. “I had so much fun, you do crazy games and I got really close with some of my fellow journalism people because we had to spend a week together in a dorm room in all these dorms and I'd say that’s probably my favorite. It got crazy and we had so much fun.” Meyer likes how journalism is different by how everyone works together, shares ideas as well as supporting each other on the ideas, and giving each other the best feedback possible so you can succeed. Currently Meyer is not involved in anything but journalism but Meyer picked up scrapbooking and is looking forward to it. She also enjoys reading in her free time.  Meyer is most proud of her Read Across America Yearbook page that she made last year. She got a lot of compliments on and Ms. Berryhill entered it into a contest and they are still waiting for the results. Meyer hopes to go into an education major to teach journalism down the road.  Story by Jersey Green
