WHS FFA Chapter 2019-2020 President Haley Allen took home the Dekalb Award.

Due to Covid-19 we had our time in the FFA cut short. Students missed out on monthly meetings, CDE completions, the chance to run for the 2020-21 officer team and our end-of-the-year friends and family banquet.

It was heartbreaking to see so many members unable to partake in these activities, so we decided to hold our end-of-the-year banquet over social media. Through this, we were able to recognize our members and community leaders so they knew they were appreciated.

As president of the chapter, I wanted to take this whole experience as a learning opportunity and give a few words of advice to next year's president. We could've never expected or been prepared for a situation like this, but I believe our chapter handled it nicely. To the class of 2020, we are missing out on a traditional graduation, celebrations and our final moments as high schoolers. But I know the class of 2020 is very hard working and if we can get through this, we can get through anything.

Many of my classmates are getting ready to further their education or go into the workforce after high school, which is amazing.

As for me, during this time in quarantine I have spent a lot of time with my family and preparing to head off to college. Although it has been difficult, I know it is important to stay safe.

With all this said, I hope everyone has taken this time to focus on themselves and their families so we can get through this together.
