On May 31, the Quincy FFA hosted its 64th Annual Parent-Member Banquet to recognize all the members who participated in CDEs (Career Development Events), recognize community supporters, and install the new officer team. CDEs are team or individual competitions to apply the skills taught in Agriculture Education classes and are transferable to their careers in the future.
At the banquet there were 100 attendees consisting of proud parents and excited FFA members. In addition to recognizing participants from 14 CDEs. Awards were presented to Star Chapter Farmer Paden Wallace who received the award because of his hard work and dedication to FFA. The Star Green hand award was presented Dave Sulistio or Super Dave as he is called by the chapter. This award is given to first year FFA members who show commitment to FFA, hard work, and willingness to try new activities. The chapter recognized Summer Sahli with an Honorary Chapter FFA Degree award. Jim Poldevart, was recognized for receiving an Honorary State FFA Degree from the Washington FFA Association.
As the chapter said goodbye to our seniors we installed our new chapter officers. FFA’s new chapter officers are Paden Wallace as president, Gavin Sahli as vice president, Anne Safe as secretary, Taren Brown as treasurer, Madison Lee as reporter and Tom Workinger as sentinel. The new officers will be going on an officer retreat July 24 to learn more about their duties and develop the program of activities for the upcoming FFA year. The members and Advisors of the Quincy FFA would like to thank the community of Quincy and all those who help and support the Quincy FFA chapter year in and year out.
