WORTHINGTON — This summer was eventful for the Worthington FFA chapter.

Before the end of what was a crazy school year, new officers were installed for the FFA officer team. The officers include President Riley Widboom, Vice President Bailey Newman, Secretary Luke Gordon, Treasurer Alex Mazariegos, Reporter Austin Barber, Sentinel Rosa Rodriguez, Parliamentarian Emma Bosma, Historian Lilly Mahlberg, and Officer-at-Large Kaden Teerink. The officer team is advised by Brett Schmidt, Deb Martin and Matt Tripp.

The officers enjoyed helping with the Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Summer Tour, where they stuffed bags full of goodies for people attending the tour. Some of our officers also served at the Farm-To-Table event in July.

With all of that fun happening, the advisors took the time to meet with FFA members throughout summer to discuss their SAE projects. They talked about different SAE’s (Supervised Agricultural Experiences) and provided opportunities for people wanting to further work in agriculture.


We were super fortunate this year to be able to serve burgers and fries at our cookshack at the fair. It was fantastic to see all of the support from our community during that time.

We are all super ag-cited to start a new school year, which kicked off with Ag Week Sept. 13-17, where we had different dress up days and events happening throughout the week. A chapter meeting and grill-out happened Sept. 14.

As we start our new year, we are excited to see old faces as well as try to reach out to get new members involved throughout the year. We are ag-cited for the upcoming year!
