For the second year in a row, the Wisconsin FFA will be led by a CALS student. In June, Alison Wedig, a second year Life Sciences Communication major, was elected state president of the organization. Last year, Logan Wells, a CALS forest and wildlife ecology major, held the position
When Alison, who grew up near Darlington, Wisconsin, starts school again this fall, she won’t be taking a full load of courses. That’s because her FFA duties come first, she says.
And there certainly are a lot of them.
Alison shared via email: “This year as Wisconsin FFA state president I will meet thousands of enthusiastic FFA members and travel over 15,000 miles across the state promoting agricultural education and the FFA. In addition to meeting with [FFA] members on the local, state and national level, the state officer team will meet with leaders in government, education, business and agriculture.”
