PONTIAC – This is an exciting year for the Pontiac FFA chapter as a number of groups have competed in different activities ranging from ag sales to a brand new contest dealing with crop scouting.

“We just had five students get recommended for the state FFA degree which is really exciting,” Pontiac FFA advisor Jesse Faber told The Central Illinois Farm Network.

Pontiac had a state proficiency winner last summer and had three American FFA degree recipients at National Convention. Another young man recently interviewed for his American degree.

Faber is especially excited about this group’s commitment to service projects such as making blankets for those in need or identifying service needs. One student even organized a meal packaging event with the goal of packing 100,000 meals.

Pontiac FFA officer Kinzie Kestner and a friend do morning handouts as a way to bring the school together.

“There is a little treat we hand out in the morning in the commons and a couple of us officers are making the cookies,” Kestner explained.

Kestner said she enjoys meeting people from all over the state and country through FFA as she has attended the national convention and leadership camp.

The annual Pontiac FFA meal and auction fundraiser took place last Saturday at PTHS with a good turnout.

“The community came out and was really supportive of everything,” explained FFA officer Alexa Hittle.
