With the school year rapidly coming to an end, the Cannon Falls FFA is undergoing a passing of the baton. Every year before the April meeting, the chapter holds applications for the upcoming year’s officer team. This year on Wednesday April 10th, the chapter announced the new 2019-2020 FFA Officer team slate. There were many amazing applicants this year hoping to get a position in office. Increased participation in the younger grades led to some applicants not receiving a spot at all. This was a good thing for the chapter since just a few years ago they were short many applicants. The hopeful students first had to fill out applications asking what their goals and aspirations were if they were to receive an office position. After the applications came the dreaded interviews where they are asked questions by the nominating committee, consisting of this year’s seniors and past alumni. Right after the interviews, the committee uses both applications and interviews to decide the new slate of officers. The applicants were left in suspense as they waited to learn what positions they received at the April meeting.

The new Cannon Falls FFA 2020 officers will be; President: Jasmine Schultz, Vice President: Lindsey Miest, Secretary: Will Tipton, Treasurer: Kendrick Otto, Reporter: Devin Sexton, Historian: Megan Wicher, Sentinel: Matthew Giese, Assistant Officer: Haley Helgren, and Assistant Officer: Ashton Beyer. The new officer team is excited to get to work to help the Cannon Falls FFA chapter, and they are hopeful for the upcoming year and what they will accomplish together.

I’m excited to see what we are going to do as an officer team this upcoming year”

— Jasmine Schulz

When junior Jazmine Schultz was asked about her new position she said, “I’m very happy I got President because I’ve been working for it for a few years now. I’m very excited for this year’s officer team because it’s filled with so many new people and some who were already officers, so it’s a good balance because having new people means new ideas. I’m excited to see what we are going to do as an officer team this upcoming year.” She is a seasoned officer with lots of experience, so it will be easy for her to help the younger officers such as 9th grader Megan Wicher. When Megan was asked how she felt about the new officer team she said, “ I am excited and eager to see what this years new officer team can accomplish with the abundance of younger members on the team. Having it be my first year as an officer, I’m excited to learn the ins and outs of being on the team in itself and being the Historian for this coming year.”

The 2019-2020 Officer team will now wait until The FFA Chapter’s annual banquet, May 6th to be installed into their respective positions. There the Chapter will gather to reminisce in the years memories, accomplishments, and growth. The Chapter banquet will also be where the 2018-2019 Officer team will retire and duly install the new officer team, helping them get ready for their upcoming year of service. As the year is coming to an end, there are lots of new changes happening to the chapter, but from the looks of it, all for the better!
