The Hillsboro FFA Chapter installed 10 officers for the 2016-17 school year on April 3.
The new officers are Breanne Fender as president, Bryanna Buerkle as vice president, Erin Clark as vice president of community development, Kaleb Harp as vice president of chapter development, Emily Earley as vice President of Student Development, Peyton Kidder as secretary, Taylor Chaney as treasurer, Ashley Chaney as reporter, Mackenzie Oglesby as sentinel and Morgan Holland as the student adviser.
These members were elected on March 22 after they went through a process to become an officer such as an interview, written test and were voted upon by chapter members. These three categories are used to determine the best fit to serve on the officer team. Officers are responsible for planning all chapter events and overseeing the well being of the chapter.
The FFA advisers, Brian Cummings and Libby McNeal, instruct the officers on good leadership practices, public speaking skills, organization and decision making. The 2015-16 officer team is proud to welcome the new officers and wish them the best of luck in undertaking the Hillsboro FFA Chapter.
Retiring officers include Meredith Oglesby, president; Lauren Grover, vice president; Samantha Fender, treasurer; Aaron Miller, sentinel; and Mikala Waller, vice president of chapter development.
