EMF FFA Holds Banquet

Chapter Degree recipients

 The EMF FFA held their annual banquet Friday night in the Exeter gym.

The evening opened with the officer introduction and President Ella Archer welcoming the many guests.

After an invocation by Will Vyhnalek a catered supper was served and then the awards began. 

The Discovery degree, awarded to junior high students and it was evident by the number of Greenhand degrees earned that the chapter is growing.  This year was an all time high of 74 members for the chapter.

After the Chapter degrees were awarded Spencer Eberspacher was recognized as the Star Chapter Farmer and Malorie Lawver and Cheyenne Krupicka were awarded the Star Chapter Greenhand awards.  Spencer Eberspacher and Jacob Weber were presented plaques recognizing their State Farmer degrees.

Those receiving ribbons and awards at the Leadership Development and Career Development Events were recognized.

A special event during the evening is the presentation of honorary membership. This year Paul Sheffield, Exeter-Milligan Superintendent and Paul Segner, long-time treasurer of the FFA Booster Club were welcomed as new honorary members.

Segner gave a brief presentation on the current status of the FFA Booster Club and then presented six $750 scholarships to graduating seniors including Spencer Eberspacher, Tyler Due, Jacob Weber, Trenton Vossler, Josh Meyer, and Devin Harrison.

After the officers introduced their parents, the seniors were introduced and hung up their jackets before each taking a moment at the podium to share their thoughts on their experiences in FFA.
