Sleepy Eye FFA Officers attended an officer workshop to plan for the upcoming school year and to get to know their fellow officers better. The team, with the help of advisors Mrs. Hoffmann, Ms. Cselovszki and Ms. Emet, and summer intern Taylor Peck, covered a lot of business such as officer duties, the chapters budget, and team goals.
The 2021-22 Sleepy Eye Officer Team: President- Morgan Hoffmann, 1st Vice President- Maddi Helget, 2nd Vice President- Adam Johnson, Secretary- Carmen Lendt, Treasurer- Alex Joramo, Reporter- Leisha Martinez, Reporter- Brooke Arneson, Student Advisor- Presley Bauer, Student Advisor- Gracie Sellner, Historian- Katelyn Capacia, Historian- Miah Brown, Sentinel- Isaac Lendt, and Officer-at-Large- Winsten Nienhaus. At the workshop, each member chose different activities to help with and organize during the year.
The team chose their goals for the year based on the needs of the chapter. Some of the team goals include:
1- To complete 2000 service hours this year.
2- To have at least 35 high school and 30 junior high members attend their respective chapter meetings.
3- To have 4 officer bonding events and for officers to dress up at every theme meeting.
The team also chose a new motto for the coming year. The Sleepy Eye FFA 2021-22 motto is Where I Belong!
The Officer team also reviewed their budget which reminded them of how important sponsors are to the chapters program. It is because of them that our chapter is able to operate and provide such amazing experiences for its members. The team was especially grateful for donations and sponsors this year because of the pandemic.
The officer team will continue to do community service this year, including cards for nursing home and assisted living residents, Wee deliver PALS with elementary, roadside clean-up, helping with the Weekend Backpack Food Program, and other service events that arise.
Throughout the business-filled meeting, the team did many team building activities, and closed the day with a story that reminded them of the impact they as officers can have on other members. The officers are extremely excited about what’s in store for the upcoming year and are looking forward to growing as leaders, serving the community, and influencing other chapter members.
