The Olivet FFA officers attended the annual officer retreat July 18-19 at Jellystone Park in South Haven, Michigan. This year our officers are Caleb Owen as President, Thela Priesman as 1st Vice President, Emma Kelenske as 2nd Vice President, Addison Van De Moortel as Student Advisor, Ryleigh Mauk as Secretary, Kennedy Moore as Treasurer, Peter Zimmerlee as Reporter, Sydney Monahan as Sentinel, and Emilie Letts as Historian. We go on the retreat so we can plan for the upcoming year and so the officers can get to know each other a little better and to help everyone learn to work as a team. The officers accomplished many things such as modifying the program of activities and goal setting, as well as, individual officer training.
