Poteet attends FFA convention
Samantha Mikolajczyk had the honor this year on serving as a reporter for the Texas FFA Chronicle Newspaper Staff. She reported about the movie “Deep in the Heart” based on the history behind Richard Wallrath. He is the largest contributor of scholarship money to the Texas FFA and 4-H program.
The officer team attended sessions where keynote address was given by Chad Hymas, Judson Laipply, Lt. Gen. Rick Lynch, National FFA Officer Alicia Hodnik, and Commissioner of Agriculture Todd Staples.
Receiving their Lone Star FFA Degrees were Emily Akers, Courtney Criswell, Samantha Mikolajczyk and Kayla Wilkins.
The officers were allowed opportunities to meet and talk with vendors and University from all over the state. Officers Rebekah Wagner, Clayton Akers, and Caitlyn Crisp had the opportunity to view the movie “Deep in the Heart”. The officers also enjoyed an opening concert by Wade Bowen and ended with a dance.
Friday was very emotional as the retiring officers hung up their jackets and the newly elected officers were installed. It was a very eventful week for the Poteet FFA officers.
