One chapter ends so another can begin! Chloe Hamaker and Grant Boyd ended a chapter in their FFA career as they retired as South Central District FFA Vice President and South Central District FFA Treasurer, respectively. Their experience allowed them to network with members from across the South Central District, build their leadership skills, and work with a team to guide the South Central District.
Finally, we were honored to have Arianna Nopoulos represent the Central Trail FFA as she vied for the position of South Central District FFA Treasurer Elect. Although she was not selected to receive this position, her passion was evident in the speech she shared. We were proud to have Arianna represent our chapter at the South Central District FFA Convention.
FFA members that attended would like to extend a thank you to everyone who assisted in preparation for this event through assisting with practices and providing needed supplies! Our members had the chance to meet many leadership goals at the South Central District FFA Convention that will benefit them in their future endeavors.
