Hello, my name is Kinley Schleicher and I am the President of the Caldwell FFA Chapter.
This is the first time that Caldwell has had an FFA Chapter in 50 years. I was greatly influenced to join FFA by a few members of the Vallivue FFA Chapter that I have shown pigs with over the years. They had told me all of the great opportunities that FFA can offer and showed me how fun FFA could be. Once we started to have our first meetings, we established the ins and outs of being a new chapter by planning our activities for the year. A few meetings passed and we started to talk about officer positions and what each position entailed. After looking through all of the positions that were offered, I decided to run for an office. At our banquet, I was honored to receive the position of president. I was excited to see how I could help our chapter grow. Some of the fundraisers that we had done were selling flowers, a bake sale, and selling hot chocolate. The majority of the chapter is receiving the Greenhand degree this month. Our chapter as a whole, has had a lot of fun getting to know each other and welcoming new members as the year progressed. I’m truly thankful for the support and lessons that I have learned over the course of this year, and I am beyond excited to see what next year has in store for the chapter and myself.
