National FFA Officer Team Visits DeKalb High School

Posted: March 21, 2019

All six members of the National FFA Officer team visited DeKalb High School in February. They spoke with area students and participated in team building activities alongside the State FFA Officer team.

This was the first time any national team had been to DeKalb. Illinois State FFA President Sophia Hortin said, “It’s important that the National team visit Illinois because of the state’s rural and urban diversity.” National FFA President Luke O’Leary noted, “Illinois FFA students are just good people. We’ve had so much fun here.”
